Ebay Watch: Picture Perfect Project - 1948 Wagon
this 1948 Station Wagon appears to have begun industriously restoring the car from the bottom up (which seems like the logical way to go to me), so you get a powder-coated frame, wheels, axles, etc. I also like that he had a plan to make this a usable car; he upgraded the frame, suspension and brakes to the hydraulic drum-brake era 1951 and later model - the best they ever made by all accounts. I also like that he quit because he got not one, but two PreWar Crosleys - a valiant reason to move on as far as I'm concerned.
mess of a hotrod project I wrote about last month, this project appears to be carefully organized and the parts are meticulously documented. Seller estimates that the car is at least '95% complete' and I think he's erring on the side of caution; I don't see much missing. In fact, there are multiples of nearly everything, like five new steering wheels? FIVE?
One bid at $3500... looks like it could be a good deal for somebody.
