1974 Buick Estate Wagon

Well I have decided to try and sell the wagon. The crew cab dually truck I have wanted for the last five years is for sale and I can't have both so the wagon has to go.

1974 Buick Estate Wagon with 52,250 miles as of today. This mileage can be verified by the elderly lady I bought it from BUT if you look at the car there is no doubt it is true mileage. 455/400 combo, car has vinyl interior that is very close to perfect, dash pad is mint, no fading in the carpet, door panels. Seats are perfect with no rips, tears blemishes, Seatbelts are not faded but the due have a little mildew damage on the front center seatbelt. Car has a/c but the belts off and I have no idea why. The alternator was replaced and does not have the double grooved pulley on it so I could not put a belt on it to see if it does or does not work. I just bought a double groove pulley but have not had time to install it. Exterior is 95% rust free. Has a very minor spot starting on the left dog leg under the chrome and the same on the left lower edge of the rear quarter. It's not noticable unless you completely stare at it while laying on the ground. I installed a CD player but did not cut any of the original wiring to do it. The CD player is installed in a oak box under the dash so it can be removed and you would never know it was there. I did the same thing with speaker boxes under the front seat. Car has new radiator, alternator, starter, distributor, plugs, plug wires, rebuilt original carburator, new dual exhaust with Thrush mufflers and H pipe, calipers, brake pads, rear shoes, wheel cylinders. Car has 15x7 Torque Thrusts on it but I also have the stock hubcaps and rims, plus a set of deluxe hubcas.ps for it also. It will come with all literature that is pictured in the below pictures. I recently drove it 400 miles with zero issues. Clock in the dash is not working and I have not tried fixing it yet, so no idea if it was just unplugged for storage or if its bad. $7,000 obo. If the dually sells before my wagon I will be keeping the wagon. I love this car but I have always wanted a 1990 Crew Cab 4wd and I know this truck and how meticulously it was maintaned. Any questions just ask

Also, some pictures of the engine bay show the air cleaner before I refurbished it. I sandblasted it, painted it and ordered the correct new decals for it as you can see in the earlier pictures in the thread
