What was the last year that the Ford Country Squire wagon was available with a manual transmission?

It was most likely in the late 60s but you need to find a copy of the Standard Catalog of American Cars- post war edition for a good answer. I have a copy but I'm away from home for the next couple of weeks. Memail me after january 5th if you still need an answer and I'll look it up for you.

I'm no Ford expert, but I know they were available at least through the third generation (59-66) with a three on the tree or the quite rare four on the floor available by special order. It's entirely possible that some fourth gen (67-68) manuals were special ordered to back up the 345 hp V-8 that hemmings mentions here.

The Ford Country Squire was based on the Full Size Galaxie/LTD platform. This page indicates that manual transmissions were available up to 1970 but that "the only choice of transmission for 1971 was the Select Shift Cruise-O-Matic three speed automatic transmission"
