Default The $800 wagon

Picked this up yesterday. Probably needs a new idle valve. And replace the fan because it heats up a little. Has a rebuilt tranny and working overdrive. Has a few extras in the car. Pretty nice shape.

Yeah much nicer than my other wagon. And all the little extra and clean interior is a big plus.

$800. People are nuts for letting these tanks go so cheaply. For your sake I'm glad they did. Super nice wag.

The oil pump doesn't work, there's no floor pans, every bolt is rusty and rounds off including the cross member bolts, and my wife hates it.

Thanks. Still haven't made it drivable yet. Maybe someday I'll get the time to work on it.

I think you need to get your eyes checked. The truck is red. Not sure what you're about on the seats?
