    Will you be swapping the AC into the Servprolara?
    That has to be one of the best finds ever.

    Oh yeah....does it have single or dual side exhaust?
    Get some megaphones from a Challenger T/A.....

    Does this deserve a FCBO "you suck"? Lol

    It's just a single glass pack coming out the side. I will not be swapping AC in. I prefer it without. Roll the windows down and drive fast. That's the AC.

    Saying things like that ( which I've said for years) makes me certain you're my kid.

    :lol:
    This one has dual vents. Wing windows. And a rear window that rolls down. I think the airflow will be plentiful.

    No ragtops until 3 parts cars go away, 1 parts car shows up, and 2 cars are turn key. I'm falling further and further behind. I have to draw the line somewhere.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who has to fight the impulse to buy derelict vehicles. I too have to prioritize, I have a big shop that needs to get done, hence the reason I have not looked at the wagon in almost 2 years. Once the shop is done I will have all the time, and space I need to work on vehicles. ;)

    If your parting the brown wagon, I'll take the small spring for the gas door on the upper door which is missing. mike DSC05019.JPG

    Ha! Reminds me of the one and only time I took my 1970 Challenger to the Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin Illinois.
    I couldn’t believe how many times I had people yell at me over the 3” pre axle dumped exhaust notes (absolutely musical but loud!) “That’s a Bad Ass Camaro!” and “Bitchin’ Camaro Man!”
    It happened literally so many times while cruising the grounds that at one point I stopped, got out and actually walked around to make sure someone hadn’t put a Camaro sticker or emblem on the car!
    I don’t have any real emblems on the car and only says Challenger on the dashpad but it does clearly say Dodge in the center of the taillights.
    Needless to say, that was the last time I went to the Street Machine Nationals. And that was 1998!

    I guess what I’m getting at is (and I know that was in the Stone Age!)
    I now have a different perspective on people not knowing what my old Mopars are and mistaking them for brand x, my favorite is “What the hell is that?” And “That has got to be the Ugliest car I’ve ever seen... and I LOVE it!” (Those quotes were my old 1962 Dart 440 9 pass wagon.

    I really enjoy telling the interested people about the cars history, what they are and how I came to own them.

    I personally think the 1969 Polara wagon has some of the best design lines of any vehicle. It flows front to back, the sweeping belt line that rolls up the tail and into the front of the integrated rear spoiler to the large wheel openings and masculine and aggressive front design and tail lights/panels.

    I’m just waiting for the right one to come along, obviously I’m a fan!
    I have to make due with Rosco P Coletrain for now! (My 1978 Monaco Ex cop wagon)

    Very cool find, love it!

    It's always nice to see a wagon getting some tender loving!

    The progression of the donor wagon being stripped and for the first time being...reassembled????
    The overhead shot was last night. The last 3 were from tonight.

    You lost me................................

    Why bother? No wonder the parts car is "bent" at the cowl with an ISO stub frame. Aren't those disc brakes worth something.?????????????
