    Here are some of the other wagons I saw at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction plus some other stuff that I thought was interesting. The sold prices listed are from memory so I may be a little off and don't include the buyer's premium.
    20190413_154346.jpg 1948 Mercury, nice unusual $53k
    20190413_170001.jpg 1953 Buick $52k
    20190413_161156.jpg 1954? Pontiac, Trans Am engine, $25k
    20190413_165701.jpg 1958 Chevy Yeoman, veterans tribute car $20k
    20190413_135246.jpg 1964 Plymouth $18k
    20190413_133158.jpg 1968 Dodge Coronet with a 440 $10k
    20190410_191948.jpg Dodge rescue 51 ' Emergency' replica built on a '91 truck with '72 front end $8500, the fire engine behind it sold for $3k
    20190413_133401.jpg 1968 International Travelall panel, the graphics are decals so they could be removed, I thought this was very cool and I think it sold cheap at $10500.
    The last three were all sold early on the first day of the auction which is apparently a good time to buy but a bad time to sell. I think everyone who consigns with Barrett-Jackson believes their stuff is going to sell for top dollar but I saw plenty of instances where the sellers must have lost money .

    They say that a black paint finish will reveal all flaws. Judging by the Bondo waves on this white tailgate, image if it had been painted black instead

    Judging from those instances, I'd think the two "best buys" are the TravelAll and the Monaco.

    I'd go for the "Squad 51" rig, if I was running the Universal Studios theme park, use it for an "Emergency!"-themed ride.

    Those "waves" in the tailgate are a reflection from the tent that it is under.

    Nice photos estate wagon. I was there also but my photos did not come out as well. Used a waterproof camera because it usually takes good photos but the contrast between the tent shade and bright outside light messed them up. The white 58 Chevy Yeoman had body issues all over. Surprised that Barrett Jackson even took it. On Saturday in a sold tent there was a 1950 Plymouth Wagon with a very good dark blue paint job that went for maybe 10.5. Not sure of price , auction number 333 and selling price can be looked up if anyone interested.

    Look again. Those aren't "bondo waves", that's an optical illusion from the scalloped edge of the tent.

    I was pretty excited to see the 64 Plymouth.
    It's far from perfect, but looked like a nice driver quality car. I was a little surprised it went for 18K.

    It should have went for more?

    No, that it went for more than he thought. Although, it looks like it has restomodding beyond the hayzoo wheels and tires. At least Jeremiah's wagon's few mods are period-correct; I've always loved Torq-Thrust D's as well as 'lake'-style wheels.
