    Nice! Dang, that's a lot of driving, especially pulling a car and trailer.

    Car started life as a V/SA slant 6 car.
    Owner said he set a record in 2009 with that combo.
    Broke the 6 a couple of times, then replaced it with a 360.
    Bracket raced it.
    Supposed to run 11.90's-12.00.
    I plan to run it in I/SA.

    Bought the car out of Washington state.

    It's not hard to find a little information about the car.
    It was owned by a guy that made plastic bones for the medical fields.

    My Son & I have always thought the wagon was cool.
    The price was right on this one, even with the cost of going to pick it up.

    I admit I think the wagons that were drag cars are cool. I had a bud back in the late 80's that moved to Mo. from Ia and ha some old B body with a 361, called the Land Ark that hauled ass petty good.
    Hey AJ/FormS right her in SE Tx here is your cheap wagon IF you did not live 3000 mi North in darn Canada!!! ha
    I wish mine was not a fancy Premier with the wood grain and the trim!!! I hate welding up that many holes!
    I have a bud back in Mo. that used to race a Volare wagon with a 360 also. He loved it and says he will make the 600 mi trip after mine ONE day!??? ha Maybe I should become a boy racer at 71????
    Funny thing about these F bodies, wagons. I advertised my 77 wagon on here, and several mopar FB site for $1000 and then $500, non runner, 318, Tx vehicle, no rust and damn straight. Got one guy trying to com up with $500. Wish I could just afford to give it to the guy. Still got it and about decided to just keep it. Not into finding shipper to send it anywhere. I never have had good experience with them. Damn brokers!!
    Anyway love your wagon Mopar Mike, it is even my favorite Mopar color!! More info when you have the time please!!
