You might consider posting more pics of some of the things buyers look for when weighing a purchase.

Here's the interior. I have the original steering wheel in the garage and will put it back on, but grandpa liked how the thinner early 70's steering wheels felt so he put a 73 Dart Swinger wheel on.

Haggerty has no problem insuring the wagon for 15k.

Don't know if you saw, but a 1978 Volare wagon just sold on Bring-a-trailer for $7200. Very handsome wagon with a 318 and 4bbl with zero rust.

And, while the title is branded, it is explained in the Q&A at the bottom that the Estate junked the car rather than deal with the title headache as the owner had passed. So, it got a Salvage branding. Still, one of the cleanest and sharpest wagons I have seen in a long time. If it had been more centrally located in the US, I believe bidding would have gone another $1k-$2k higher. $3300 to ship it to MD made it too rich for my blood.

You might consider putting it in BaT. They have QUITE and audience and are partnered with a shipper. Plus, their team really know how to photograph a car. Part of the reason I am on there everyday. My other half calls it car porn.

Id pay that price for either one! Although I guess I’m partial to wagons… trying to decode the option code from the trim tag for some reason currently…

but it has a salvage title. good luck trying to get it registered on the road in some states like NJ. Doubt Hagerty would give high value to a salvage title. nice wagon no doubt. Great "lean burn system" to keep you wondering whats causing your car to stall out! :)
