You knew that there was going to be at least one Wagon Posting this weekend, right? Well, I found two Sun Dried and Baked Wagons that seem to be from the same seller in Fort Worth Texas, and they are both is rather pathetic shape, but they can probably be rescued to run another day. (Or Maybe Not…) The First Wagon is a 1970 Chevrolet Kingswood Estate Wagon, and I have a confession to make here and now… I was begging my old man back in the day to ditch the family van (A 1963 Corvair Greenbriar) in favor of a 1969 or 1970 Kingswood Estate because I thought they were so cool at the time… Yea, I was a Wagon Nerd… Anyway, getting back to this Wagon, the listing states:
We got here a 1970 kingwood station wagon. It has a 400 cu in. Motor automatic trans. Tilt wheel AM FM RADIO. Does NOT run. Overall good condition.
So let’s get this straight… The wagon is in overall good condition, but it doesn’t run? I know the seller is marketing this as a Rat Rod Project (I am so tired of the Rat Rod Trend…) and is asking an astonishing $3,500 for this machine. Newsflash… Running versions of these cars ae going for that much… See the listing here, and tell me what you think of it. Off to the next wagon, and yea, I have a soft spot for these as well. This is a 1973 Ford Pinto Squire, and this one even has A/C. At least its running, but the seller couldn’t be botheres with cleaning out the plastic water bottles… According to the listing:
Have a 1973 Ford Pinto Squire Wagon in good shape, runs and drives great, interior is original and in great shape, exterior is original paint, all emblems, windows and trim good. Original Engine is 2.0 automatic. 2 door. This is a great classic car everything is original, ready to be restored, or drive the way it is, or making this a sleeper drag race car. Would only need a little bit to make this a real nice show car.
Asking price for this Pinto is $3,000… Are you kidding me? Take a look at the listing, and tell me if it’s worth saving.
