Flashy hardtop coupes and convertibles may get all the glory, but sensible sedans and station wagons have historically been an automakers real bread and butter. Detroit has long excelled at producing these no nonsense, value oriented automobiles that were sold almost entirely for their practical virtures. Family haulers were not quite as glamorous as sports cars and muscle cars. However, designers usually managed to build even the most plain Jane American Automobiles with lots of eye catching style. Over the years our family haulers came equipped with popular features such as bright paint, stainless trim, chrome, large engines, automatic transmissions and air conditioning.
Maybe the most significant American Automobile of all time was Henry Fords Model T and it was well known as a family hauler. The 1909 Ford Model T was strickly a utility vehicle and took no beauty prizes or speed contest. It was known as the Tin Lizzie.
The formula for the Model T sucess was that it was simple, tough and cheap. It was not cheaply built and sold for about $825.00 in 1909 and $260.00 in 1924. What came next for Ford? The Model A in 1927, the V-8 in 1932, World War ll in the 1940s, redesigned postwar cars of the 1950s, muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s and large 4 door sedans and wagons of the 1980s and 1990s.

The 1955, 1956 and 1957 tri-five Chevrolets were revolutionary automobiles that brought a whole new level of styling and performance. Family haulers included 4 door sedans and 9 passenger station wagons. The big news under the hood for the family favorite was the all new Turbo Fire V-8 engine. The 1955 ’56 and ’57 Chevy’s are among history’s most celebrated automobiles for their iconic styling and solid engineering.
1942 Chrysler Town and Country
The Chrysler Town & Country was an American Automobile manufactured by Chrysler from 1940-1942 and from 1945-1988 and was a family favorite.
1963 Ford Fairlane Ranch Station Wagon
Ford skillfully restyled the Ford Fairlane Ranch Station Wagon into a hot little family hauler and grocery getter. The Ford Fairlane fell between the compact falcon and the big Galaxie 500.
Chevrolet Caprice Classic on 24s
The Chevrolet Caprice Classic would serve well as the family hauler for more than a decade. But, it would be its crisp squared up body design that would make a family favorite a donk with 24 inch rims.
