    I've seen that Shockwave video before. Kinda brings tears to my eyes. I've owned and driven a couple of those, and I used to collect those magazines with my dad. We had some good times building those cars. Thanks.(y)

    In the first picture, it looks like a new wagon, but seems that the paint on the tailgate is all roof color. In others pictures of 1960 Chevy wagons, the top of the tailgate is roof color, and the part below the molding is the body color. Wonder if GM messed up??

    I recognize this picture as the town center of Templeton MA

    Nope. Picture is at least from Fall of '62. Comet on the left side is a 1963.
    Looks like somebody sourced a used tail gate on the Chev.

    The wagon to the left of the '62 Comet is a 63 Chevy, and the roof line of a 63-65 Riviera is visible on the next row, but its later than fall '62. The tail light and rear bumper of the car to the right of the 60 Chevy wagon, is a 64 Buick Skylark.

    My guess is, something happened to the original tailgate (backed into something) and they replaced it with one that was of similar color to the top tu-tone, most likely from a wrecking yard.
