Glen Campbells 1968 Mercury Station Wagon and Ford Mustang

Post by jay » Fri Mar 27, 2020 8:22 am

I am sure it is a Ford Mustang. I am sure it is a Mercury station wagon. I am pretty close on the year model. I am not sure what make the station wagon is, but I will keep looking. It looks like an "E" by the tail light.

Glen Campbell's 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Station Wagon

Post by jay » Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:36 am

Glen Campbell is said to have received this car from Barris Kustom Industries in North Hollywood. It's "Persian Green" and was featured on the 1973 or 1974 edition of Motor Track magazine along with Evil Knievils Cadillac pick up truck. It was built specifically for Glen Campbell and was one of 7 built. There are no pictures available of the car with Glen. It has been sold and reconditioned several times and each time has been linked to Glen.

Glen, in a 2007 interview, shares a story about his 1942 Mercury and his trip out to California.

At one time, Glen owned this beautiful car. It was used in a photoshoot with Glen and Bobbie Gentry.

Glen Campbell and a 1947 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty

Post by jay » Sun Nov 24, 2019 11:29 am

Now, this may have been Glen's car! From all the car pictures we see Glen in, in the late 50's...this is one he may have been able to afford. Many thanks to the folks at the Antique Automobile Club of America for helping me ID it.

Glen Campbell and a 1954 Ford Crestline

Post by jay » Sun Nov 24, 2019 9:19 am

I would love to know more about this picture. Maybe it was taken out by Sandia Mountain? Who was Glen with? The car is as interesting. The Ford Crestline was only made for 3 years. It was the most expensive Ford you could buy from '52-'54.

Glen Campbell and a '56 TBird

Glen Campbell as he smiles and leans against his car, a 1956 Ford Tbird, in 1978. Sorry about the size.

Glen and Debby Campbell with a 1957 Mercury Montclair

Post by jay » Sat Nov 23, 2019 11:14 am

This picture was taken in Albuquerque. I have been to its location. Debby was born in 1956, so if this was Glen's car, it would have been close to new when this picture was taken.

Glen Campbell and a 1942 Mercury

Post by admin » Sat Nov 23, 2019 9:58 am

This is another early picture of Glen with a Mercury. This is 1942 Mercury. I am assuming Glen is 17 in this picture, give or take a year. I also believe this was taken in New Mexico.
