Beautiful Two Tone Paint Job
Wow, what a completely meticulously restored auto. This beauty just placed 2nd in it's class at the 2014 Dallas Autorama. The work put into her is top grade, as every nut and bolt has been replaced on her.
Not only does she look good, but the way she drives and handles is amazing. The perfect show car , or a weekend driver, this is a great car. Walking around the car, you will notice the flawless paint. The restorer found a color as close to original as possible.
She is running around on new tires with factory steel wheels. They have the original style hub cap and beauty ring. As you can see by the original trim tag, The paint was Glacier Blue/Skyline blue, and the trim tag codes out to Blue/Beige for the interior. The ultra leather interior is amazing. All the original side chrome has been polished and the front and rear bumpers are new.
Back when hood ornaments ment something, it was hard to beat the size and styling of this one. What might be out of place now and days, totally makes this gal shine just that little bit more. The back seat of the wagon folds down giving you plenty of room to put all of your car show gear.
Or if you choose, can you imagine a better picnic wagon? or watching soccer games sitting on the tailgate?
There is a spare factory steel wheel but no spare tire. The front and back seats are actually the originals. There is an Ididit tilt steering column with the smaller reproduction steering wheel. The after market a/c is an Old Air unit, and blows cold. This Handyman wagon is truly one of the nicest we have ever seen.
The engine not only looks good under the hood, it runs very smooth. She starts great and is ready to run as soon as you turn the key. The engine was rebuilt 30 over, with a mild cam, but boy does she runs smooth. The Edelbrock carb was tuned perfect to her liking. This with the cruising gears that were installed, really makes this perfect vehicle to cut away from the cookie cutter SUV's on today's road.
You can see the above hinges and latches below look as though she just came off the factory assembly line. However the under hood paint and chrome far exceeds how she was when stock. The excellent work finish was not just focused above. The undercarriage has been addressed as well. There was great attention to detail. Every piece of black metal that could be, was powder coated.
We hope you have enjoyed our presentation of this incredible beautiful Handyman Wagon. Please stop by and see it in person.
