I know of only two 1928 Ford Martin-Parry Station Wagons.  I have one, and there is one other in Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Station Wagon was the Feature Car of the Month in the February 1965 Hemmings Motor News.

I think that Rev. Mellin got confused about only 5 Martin-Parry Station Wagons being built.  In 1928, Ford made 5 Station Wagons as prototype cars to show to Henry Ford. These 5 cars are still in existence today, but they were not made by the Martin-Parry Corporation.
