Taking Delivery

Monaco Wagon from Wildcat

General Information

These are photos of the 73 Monaco Wagon I bought from Wildcat Mopars in Oregon. It took a trip across the country in the process. These are pics of it in their lot and being packed up for shipment....and the after dark delivery several days later to a parking lot near me. "Now what?"...

Awesome find! Now the fun begins = Patience, time, and of course monies. I hope you will be able to get this beauty restored. Rare with the hidden head lights on a wagon.
 
Thanks to all for the encouraging comments. Waiting for cold weather to end so I can install new fuel pump.
 
That's pretty cool that you bought it. My car is in very similar shape. Good luck with it.

Thanks. I cleaned out & reattached the fuel pump and 'fed' it from a gas can today, the engine ran real smooth from that. Ethanol free, of course.

What are you working on?
 
Today I opened the glove box. Don't know why I didn't think to do that sooner. Duh.

It had the flipping owner's manual. In the plastic sleeve. With a Registration card. And two spare locks. In a ziplock bag. AND a pull strap from the door, with all the hardware.

Note to self: open glove box soon after buying car, there may be some Easter eggs in there.
 
We should talk. I passed on that Beast and I'm still kickin' myself. How far from Wilmington are you? I'd at least like to drool on it ah bit, Jer

Hi Jer, I am pretty far from Wilmington. Once I get this roadworthy, maybe there will be some Mopar events in central NC you'd be going to that I will attend. This is slow going, but I am motivated now that I have heard the v8 purr. Right now I have to balance out the demands of life versus wrench time and the repair budget.
 
Nice car. Those old wagons bring back a lot of memories. Good luck you have a great car there certainly didn,t belong in a junkyard. Glad you saved her. I would love to see your progress and finished work. Frank
 
Sweet car and the color is way better then yellow or brown, glad to see you saved it from rusting away.
