Finally got some time to post a thread. Found a nice clean wagon for a really good price. Body and frame are solid (body a few minor surface spots), chrome is good, interior is pretty nice. V6 and th250 (getting yanked down the road) Factory tinted windows, AC, rear defroster, side molding and pinstripe. Also has a 1 inch rear sway bar ( guessing from factory).
The plan is to fix the little things first. After that put a small block and th350 suspension upgrades and all the other fun stuff. 20200715_201327.jpg 20200713_202142.jpg 20200713_202151.jpg 20200712_155241.jpg 20200620_143454.jpg 20200713_202122.jpg 20200713_202200.jpg 20200702_201451.jpg
