We bought this car in 2003. It was in all original condition, including the original paint and the original generator.
Without knowing what we were getting into, my husband forged ahead with yanking the stock 289 and replacing it with the fuel injected 302. After many trials and tribulations, it now sees daily driver duty (about 50 miles round trip).
Most of the performance parts on this car came off our Mustang with the exception of the intake. As we made the Mustang more powerful, the extra performance parts were stacking up in the garage... what better use for them than this wagon?
Just recently the body and paint were done. There was a bit of work to be done to the body, but it all came out beautifully.
Total restoration. Frame, steering, suspension, as clean underneath as it is outside. Paint is 2004 Jag midnight mica. Engine is a 396 punched to 410 Built Big block. This isn't your grandmas wagon, But it did start the restoration as a 90% rust free example of one.
