PostSubject: Revived another wagon   Fri Jun 14, 2013 7:28 pm

Some of you might remember the revival of my blue wagon. Yes, it looks rough but I brought it back to life after sitting for 6 years on somebody's front lawn. 

The owner I got it front had 2 sitting on his lawn. 

Before I took ownership of the blue wagon some things went wrong with it and it was parked. He then bought another one a began to drive it daily. Some things went wrong with that one too and it sat next to the blue wagon for about 3 or 4 years.

He towed it to me about two weeks ago and I got to work with the pile of parts he provided.

Using almost all AC Delco and GM parts I got to work. New battery, water pump, gm coolant tank, plugs, wires, corvette starter, fuel pump, fuel filter, Pcv valve, oil change, repair ground to fuel pump relay, new fuel pump in tank harness, Monroe ss shocks front and rear, moog cargo coils in rear and a few odds and ends I'm forgetting. I put about 100 miles on it and it runs and drives beautiful after sitting for 3 years. 

I didn't take any pics of what I did but here's a few of the car. 













Were looking for some SS wheels now. He's gonna de wood it and get it painted because the whole passenger side was side swiped a few years back. Figured I'd share this with you guys, I hate to see these parted out or junked because of some small issues. I've revived a few b bodies these past 8 years and its been fun. Lots more to come I'm sure.

Cool.  I didn't catch the year but if it's a '95 then it's a total twin (aside from options, of course).  It's the first twin to my car that I've seen around here.
