    Looks like it was hit on the front driver side corner same as mine. Lenses and headlight buckets are clearer on that side. The front fender and 1/4 of the hood look a touch newer and the driver door is darker. You could probably bring back the rest of the paint to match well enough though.

    What worries me is the top of the rad support looking a little tweaked.

    I noticed the drivers door looking a shade darker than the surrounding panels, but wasn't sure if it might just be reflection from the white concrete. However, it does look like the spaces between the headlight buckets and the fenders/hood are not evenly spaced at all. This is noted too in some of the pics online that I didn't upload. Regardless, I'd rather deal with a tweeked front end than rust anyday.
    Yep, it sure is. I'm generally not really fond of red, but on this wagon I like the exterior color. It is somewhat unusual I think. The red interior I could do without, but it's ok. Not sure what other color would have been available with the red exterior. The butterscotch tan maybe, but I don't think that would have looked better.

    That's a clean old wagon. Why do folks always toss the battery box? The only thing I'd do to it is swap out the wheels and tires and drive it.
