Ahh, how can you forget this wagon! If I recall, when it was on eBay last year the bidding got much higher than I thought possible, $8K range or so. I think however a proper set of wheels would give this baby a whole new prospective.

The paint on this Plymouth is diabolical! How could anyone think this looks good?
And if you do something so bizarre, how could you think anyone else would want to buy it? I bet this wagon was beautiful before some freak got a hold of it! Probably gold or beige with woodgrain.

Thing is - it appears to have been done very well. Paint job certainly isn't a 'Earl Scheib'

Just such a shame it has those colors. I sure hope whoever had it done like that enjoyed it.

Look very close at the underhood pic - you'll see a green hood hinge. This was dark metallic green originally.

The Fifties' wide whites and three-bar spinners look like $hit on this! Great on a pre-'62 car, but dead wrong on anything Seventies!

And the engine is incorrectly painted Ford Blue, versus the proper (and lighter) Chrysler Blue.

Lots of wrong for the money.

This is likely what it originally looked like.
