The back looks different than most sedans I've seen. Was it a hatchback originally?

I couldn't agree with you more. I have a 77 sedan parts car, and a 80 Runabout that is replacing the rusted sedan, but prefer the look of the sedans.

Hi there!

I just logged in to this site for the first time, thought it might be a good idea to introduce my 72 Wagon, that managed to get itself exported all the way to the Netherlands!
It's in a bit of a sorry state, had a hard life I imagine, an original 4-speed, converted (badly) to auto.
I'm planning on slowly updating and repairing this car, hope to post more in the future.

Here she is.  I painted this car from white to a medium green metallic with gray metallic two tone.  Some of the other bits have been painted the gray metallic also (mirrors, front head light trim pieces that used to be chrome (mine were badly pitted)).  I have a whole album that can be viewed at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10101069276907414.1073741825.11309625&type=1&l=32bb0d2d46
I did the final wet sand today, and will hopefully very shortly be doing the final polish out of the paint.  Once I tackle that it'll be on to the engine upgrades I'd like to do.  I want this to be capable enough to be a daily driver should I need it to be.  I have a rebuilt head with a ranger roller, swirl polish valves, ACE adapter for the stock manifold with an autolite 2150 carb and open element air cleaner.  I'm also planning on using a ranger header with 2" exhaust.

Thanks Scott, sadly got it running just as the weather turned cold so still have not had the chance to drive it yet. So now it's on to body work and hope to have it painted by spring. I just have to keep eating my elephant one bolt at a time!
