    Wow. A standard steering wheel car. Other than AC, the clock, and power tailgate this car has zero options. I had a '74 Catalina with the same interior and seat belts. This car was actually ordered this way by a customer!

    That back window and door rot though... I'll bet you the roof is also rotting judging by the rust I see. Poor car.

    Believe elB is correct and I wish it were not so. A wire brush, a rattle can of rustoleum and a dry garage 10 years ago would have made a world of difference. A real shame.

    Looks like sold new as an Indiana car. That could explain a lot of the rust.

    But don't the cars on the coasts rust from the top down? I do like the simplicity of this wagon thought.

    Pfffftt! I've seen worse. Hell, I've owned and driven worse. I'd take that thing and drive the m-f wheels off it as it is. I wouldn't pay top dollar but I would sure would enjoy it. Take the chrome off and see how bad it really is.....
