    This link will take you to my Flickr account, & the pics of my 64 Plymouth Wagon. I have had this car for a couple years, slowly gathering parts for it's "restification" Plans are for it to be a nice driver, and taking it on the Hot Rod Power Tour either next year or the year after.

    The previous owner had already swapped out the rear end for a newer one, and installed power disc brakes. 64's have pressed on brake drums on the rear, and while they function very good, are a P.I.T.A. to work on. a 65 to 70 Mopar B body rear (drum to drum) will bolt right in, doing away with the pressed on drums.

    Great! the link worked. The interior is trashed, but all there. Engine & trans work, but just barely. I bought a failed project (64 Fury) & kept the newly rebuilt 318 & trans. The engine & trans are pictured on Flickr, & they are being installed shortly, as soon as the paint in the newly repainted engine bay dries.

    I'm going to check on it tomorrow, and will take a few pics.

    Just checked in with the body shop/mechanics. Nice progress! Engine bay painted, rebuilt engine/trans installed, re-cored radiator in place. Rusted section of cowl cut out, inner cowl repaired. Looking very good!

    Things are coming together! Caught a sale at Legendary, & ordered carpet & seat upholstery. Monday, it will be delivered to the exhaust man for new dual exhaust. Then I get the car back to work whatever bugs I find out.

    Here comes the fun part!!!!!

    Time to get this thread rolling again. After many set backs, the wagon is getting the body work taken care of. Will be taking pics & posting them soon.

    After the passing of my good friend & body guy last year, I've been looking for a new Body guy. At present I'm trying out one now. Keeping my fingers crossed that this turns out good.
