Definitely got lucky. Hopefully the seats hold up when they start getting used again.
My experience with Poppy (same year/model, 'vert version of the same bench seats/vinyl, 3 driving seasons and 3k miles) suggests that they will.

If for whatever reason you may choose to get rid of the rubber floor mats DO NOT throw them away (unless they are badly damaged). They are worth a lot, police car restorers are always looking for them.

It's carpet. Very nasty carpet.

Slow progress. Over the past few months I have pulled the engine to refresh.

I also restored the fuel tank.

A few small spots my father and I brazed up then soldered over.

Then I used POR15 tank sealer on the inside...

I then rolled some black POR15 on the outside

What is the odometer showing Wyatt - I don't think I ever saw that number in your posts?

That is going to be a very fine looking/running wagon soon. Nice work!
