Someone here in SoCal has a '77-78 Cruising Wagon sitting in the weeds between a bunch of other junk cars. Saw it on CL in the parts section. Might be worth shipping if he'll sell it whole and cheap enough.

Sniping is a hazard of the job on fleaBait. I do it periodically, but generally have in mind a maximum that I'm willing to pay and just put that in. If someone else wants to pay more or just pay too much, let them be the biggest loser.

That's really what a winning bidder is; the loser. They get the worst price because they won't wait for a better one.
'72 Runabout - 2.3T, T5, MegaSquirt-II, 8", 5-lugs, big brakes.
'68 Mustang - Built roller 302, Toploader, 9", etc.

Ironically to the left of the Cruise Wagon is a 64-66 Studebaker (Lark type). I looked for a year and a half for a replacement windshield and eventually had to settle for one with a bulls-eye and multiple scratches that was 400 miles from home.  Now..., there is one sitting less than 100 miles away. Doesn't it always work out that way.

  I'd say it is a minor miracle that a CL ad poster actually replied (even if the answer wasn't positive). With the cash willing to be spent there will be another Cruise Wagon (and likely a lot better one) coming soon.  Someday this will be you (except in a Cruise Wagon). Studebaker, first drive:
