      So whatever happened to this wagon conversion? Did it ever get finished or is it still on the back burner?

      Right now it’s just sitting the passenger side is done and the drivers side needs the sheet metal welded in
      After my youngest daughter got sick I really haven’t had time or felt like working on it. Hopefully this year I’ll get back on it. It’s not going anywhere I’ll get it finished

      Wagons of Steel North runs a 64 Dodge B-body wagon - 2 door, altered wheelbase! Worth checking out: Wagons of Steel North

      sorry to hear about your daughter being ill and I really hope she gets better and I hope you get back in the mood to work on the car. I was looking at the work you did on it and makes me feel like I need to get on my wagon, but I’m giving it to somebody else to work on for now, but nothing is getting done on it, or at least not enough for me to be happy with. Maybe go out for 15 minutes and wipe something down or sit on it and think about it.

      Keep at it! Even just doing a little bit every day or even once a week and it will get done. That’s the way I’ve approached my wagon to sedan delivery conversion. I am using the B Pillars and doors from a 66 Valiant 2 door sedan with part of the original rear door skins between the quarter panel and B Pillar. I can appreciate the work swapping the B pillars, getting everything aligned and all the welding involved.

      How did that that tailgate torsion bar work out?
