    Looks nice, but those 1970s colors. Boring. Beige, brown, tan, repeat.

    2 seater, power seat, deluxe steering wheel, and somewhat rare cloth interior. The cargo area looks a little faded/worn and there is a bad spot on driver's dash corner.

    Looks good. Seller states its yellow but I think it's faded Sand Beige. Canary yellow only available on small cars. My car is the darker Sandston color

    Is that a lazy rear door? Not quite closing? Price seems reasonable for a clamshell, no?

    Hey Bigboats, a set of the rally wheel covers like yours would sure spruce it up. Didn’t remember cloth on the wagon was even available. Thanks for that insight. Ford/Mercury you could get dura-weave, but that really wasn’t that common either, guess more so in a warmer climate, but 90% of the wagons in the Midwest anyway seem to have vinyl or leather. Any Ford/Mercury folks out there ever seen cloth on a wagon? Don’t think i’ve Ever seen a FOMOCO wagon of that vintage with cloth

    I can't say about the 70s Wagons but my 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis Wagon has it.

    Looks like the factory optional Prado Buckskin cloth notchback interior.

    Yeah I have an ‘83 Colony Park with the brown cloth. I don’t know if they started off in ‘79 with the change offering cloth, but they offered it on that body style through ‘91. Mine is an LS. I’m assuming you could get the cloth in the GS as well.

    60merc,
    My car was factory ordered with the same hubcaps on this 75. I added the Buick Road(rally) Wheels myself. The real chrome steel wheels, not to be confused with the rally hubcaps that are made to look like the steel wheels. Those wobble and don't sit in far enough into the wheels, I think they look off. The Road Wheels really make the car.

    This 75 has the power notchback cloth bench. Mine has power notchback vinyl 60/40.

    Someone will buy this, fix dash, detail it, and sell on eBay in the spring for $12k. We've seen buicks with obvious rust sell for $5-6k. This should get gobbled up quick at his price. 2 seater hurts the appeal the most I think.

    This is the car from Hershey. I contacted the seller. I know what he paid for the car and I’d let him make money on me. But at this time I’m not willing to let him make the amount he wants. I bought a 75 Impala Sport Coupe instead

    The Craigslist listing is gone. Is it still for sale? Does it have the clamshell?
