History:
This vehicle was purchased in 2002 at 75,866 miles on the odometer. It was maintained and driven weekly for a few years. It was then parked for approximately 8 years. In 2014 the cylinders were soaked with Marvel Mystery Oil and the engine was turned by hand. After a tuneup, some distributor parts and a carb rebuild it cranked right up. The wagon was then garaged until recently. This vehicle is being sold “as is” to make room in the garage, as well as to give another enthusiast the pleasure of working on and driving such a great historical vehicle.
