Welcome aboard! Always good to see another wagon pusher on the board. It looks like a nice wagon with a lot of potential. it should clean up nicely.
Let us know how it's going. Btw, I agree with Mark, a Buick 350 with a 200-4R would be a nice combo for that car.

I just washed the ol girl up today... now I need to redo all the brakes on the front end... anyone have any good suggestions? I also plan to lower it a couple inches! Any help would be appreciated.

Looks great, is that the original color? Can’t say I’ve seen that shade on a wagon before. Looks like it must of been a woody too.

It’s not the original color, they didn’t paint the door jams and from what I can tell it used to be silver or grey.

If you want to absolutely get down, I have a set of 3" drop springs for a wagon. Went a different direction (up). Never installed.

What I call a HOLLYWOOD PAINT JOB, watching movies or tv you see that all the time. Before you get into brakes and suspension consider what wheel/tire combo you want to use SIZE MATTERS,LOL . 17 inch wheels clear just about any of the brake system swaps without looking odd on our cars. Smaller wheels limits your choices. BTW, welcome to the forum. Nice starter project.
