Well I had been good for 3.5 months but yup, I bought another one this morning. 13th wagon since Aug 2007....hey that's one every 6 months!  This one needs a fuel pump.
96 White woody, trashed blue interior, 110K  NOt quite sure what I'm going tot do with it yet.

I think it'll clean up okay but not great.  2 owner car, SE FL it's whole life, only one rust area (pics to come)I now have 4 at the house and my boy has two so we have a 6-pack!

Wish I had space for 6. There's a couple of 96 & 94 wagons available here cheap.

Did you ever sell the tan wagon? I still say you have the most understanding wife in history!

couple of dents, first owner was in his 70s and the guy I got it from says all the dents are from the first owner


Wood is good, need to clean her up and wax it.


This is AFTER I vacuumed it for 20 minutes. It was his work truck and FULL of leaves and sand


Cargo box FULL of water.....Haven't pulled the plastic cover yet, but betting there is more down there


Seats are in GREAT shape


Bumper looks like crap good thing I have an OCC one laying around.

Yeah I figured that was at least $200 value added lol

Considering what I paid for it, I'll be hard pressed to lose money on it even if I scrap it. The stainless molding is shot too (all dented up and drywall screws holding the rub strip on  Rolling Eyes  A strong candidate for Morticia treatment

Well I sold it this morning to my buddy who helped me tow it home. This will be his 2nd wagon and 4th B-body in his possesion. I'm walking away from it for what I have in it, just to pass the love on and free up a parking spot.

It is not a worthy canidate for resurrection unless you wanted a rat rod or work truck. Thought about parting it out, but don't have the time nor inclanation as I have other projects.

Any idea how the water gets into the cargo box? I had the same issue, turned out to be a clogged drain hole.

Pete

There are a few ways water gets in the cargo box: butterfly window, roof rack or maybe the rear side window.

this one also has an actual hole in the roof too but it's small and not in a rain channel so most likely one of the other ways. Most of my 13 wagons have leaked back here one way or another
