Hooniverse Wagon Wednesday – A Custom 1969 2-Door Chevelle Wagon. Wait… What?


The 2-Door Station Wagon has become something that is very desirable lately. One of the most iconic 2-Door wagons is the Chevrolet Nomad (and the similar Pontiac Safari) built between 1955 and 1957. They fused the style of a 2-Door Coupe with a longroof to create a vehicle unlike any other. Ford tried to follow suit with their 2-Door Parklane Wagon, but it didn’t have the style the Nomad did.
The Chevelle of 1964 and 1965 did offer a 2-Door wagon, but with less than 5,000 units produced for the two model years, it was quickly dropped. However, there was a builder who thought a 2-Door wagon was a great idea, and took on the challenge to create one from a 1969 Chevelle Coupe, and its now for sale.


This is a unique car that looks like the builder mated a 2-Door Chevelle Hardtop Coupe to the backend of a standard Chevelle Wagon. If he took two rather average Chevelles to make this creation, I think I can forgive him. Anyway, according to the recently discontinued eBay listing:

This was originally a hardtop Chevelle and has now become a custom, 1-of-a-kind resto-mod! This is just too cool to pass up!!

Finished in Black with Red stripes, this Chevelle has driver quality paint. There are a few areas where the paint work was blemished a little bit, please view the photos below or call us for additional details. The Red vinyl seating and overall interior is brand new and in great condition. There are two DVD players-one is on the farthest rear door and the other drops down between the front seats.

The car is equipped with the following features:
– 7.4L Vortec injected big block engine,
– 4L80E 4-speed automatic transmission,
– Air shocks, Hotchkiss rear suspension,
– Dual Flowmaster exhaust,
– Rallye wheels with Red line tires,
– Power steering, Power disc brakes,
– R134 air conditioning,
– Heavy duty alternator and cooling,
– Power windows, Tilt steering, Custom gauges,
– Pioneer sound system,
– SS hood
– AND SO MUCH MORE!!


According to the dealer, Discover Classic Cars in Scottsdale, the asking price for this one-of-a-kind creation is $33,888! With interesting body work, an eye-popping interior, and a crate 7.4L Big Block, it might be worth the asking price. See the listing here.

    Yeah, the windows look a little weird, but I think I'd get over that. Otherwise, this pushes all the right buttons. Man, what a road beast. Ninety miles an hour across Nevada, that would be me.

    Woof. It is cool, in theory, but the execution is pretty bad. And what the hell is up with the "sound system? You have a wagon with room, why have 6×9 speaker boxes on the floor? That's just terrible, with a terrible price.

      Yeah, just noticed that.

    A worthy idea, but the transition from cabin to wagon is horrendous. Great workmanship, though.

    The styling does not work at all on this one. Clash City. Why didn't the builder start with an El Camino instead?

      That was the first thing I thought when I saw this.

      I agree. The swoopifying quarter windows and the squarish rear window just don't go together. Don't get me wrong, I love me some 2-door wagon, but not this one.

      I agree, I spotted recently on a Chevelle special issue of Super Chevy magazine, an illustrated "what if?" made by Keith Kaucher of Kaucher Kustoms, I scanned it and posted it on GMInsidenews http://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f19/1969-nomad
      And that design inspired me to sketch my own attempt of "what if?" to imagine a fictionnal 1970 Pontiac GTO Safari 2-door wagon ^^; then I posted on Deviantart http://fav.me/d562gwy

      Now that is nice. Looks good enough to be a factory production job.

        I know, I'd really like to see how it looks with that rear window rolled up. To the best of my knowledge these weren't pillarless wagons.

          You're right. GM stopped making pillarless wagons after 1958.

      That panel is the best. Panels are always the best since nobody can see the kids tied down in the back.

    Since regular 2-door A-Bodies are a little too common, this is very cool, even if it's not perfectly executed. Plus, I like the Vortec big block.

    Gah! Wasn't expecting all that red when I scrolled down…
    (rubs eyes)
    Cool car. (bumps into wall, evidently blinded)

      Red. Right down to the shift knob.

    I was on the fence about this one due to the horrible klugeiness of the Chevelle 3/4 window and the line from the wagon body. But the Porno-Red interior threw me right into, "Oh my g- *puke*" territory.

    Was that treatment of the sliding 3rd row seat original, or did this guy come up with it? To my eye it's the best part of the car.

    Part of the problem with this car is that two-door Chevelles of this generation were built on a wheelbase four inches shorter than the sedans or wagons. That makes the mashup of the wagon windows and the pointy quarter windows even worse. And inside the car, that four inches has to come out of something. It looks like in order to preserve the cargo area and make it possible to keep the third seat, it was taken out of the second seat legroom.

    Not a Chevelle guy, but I have to say this is a nice job, and probably the only Chevelle shooting brake. If you're a GM fan who likes wagons, and a Nomad or Safari doesn't float your boat, here's the ticket…

    the point was to keep it a 69 if he wanted to put different rear windows in it it wouldnt be how gm would have made it. and the funny thing is that buick that was posted was built by the same guy. And as for the 6x9s they are supposed to be in between the middle and rear seat why thwy were on the floor in this picture i dont know.

    he also built the 64 vista cruisa wagon, and the 66 two door wagon chuck hansen slaughtered and drives, He is wagon god, he is my hero, he is outstanding craftsmen, he is my dad. Oh and that car was built in 9 WEEKS.

    I have allways loved the 50's 2door wagons and sedan deliveries. and think the Vista Cruser is the best of this bunch desighn
    Wish the factory kept building them..or at least made them special orders.but most people walk into the dealerships not knowing shit about what they want. and a salesman who have gagbage on the lot,and who Heaven forbid,had to do the paper work to order what the customer wants.Push the poor sots wife to buy the crap for a G more than what they should pay.Buy off the LOT.

    This it what would have happened if Rambler stylists had gotten involved in the chevelle wagon.
