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.

Below is the description from the inside front cover.

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.
