Just a little preface to the build.

My sons Jameson (11) and Joshua (9) have been in the shop with me since then were able to walk and three years ago started a project called The Little Mechanics. We find and build projects with the boys handling the lions share of the work.

The Malibu Project started with a letter Jameson wrote to Santa Clause when he was 6 years old. I spent the next 4 years trying to find the right car to start with.

A routine EBay search in June of 2018 turned up a beautiful 86k mile 1978 Camel Beige Wagon in Phoenix AZ. A few emails a little wheeling and dealing and the wagon was on its way north.

Welcome aboard!
It's great to see that you started your boys interested in the hobby young. It's also nice to see that they chose a Malibu wagon as their project..How cool is that? Nice wagon too, I might add.
Thank you for sharing the pics. Please keep us updated on the wagon project.
