That pale green is a great color.
I love it !
A nice touch that I saw on my 65 CHrysler was that they filled in the seams where the C pillar blended into the rear fenders , just ahead of the trunk. So I did some seam filling on my wagon. I just used plastic filler, but was careful to bevel down the metal (about 1-2 mm) running along the seams on each side of the seam, so that the filler covered about a I inch spread across the seam (OK, 25.4 mm). That way, the filler will be less apt to just crack in the seam. Some decent before pictures would help, if you care to chime in. The optional backup lights were a $26 option that year. According to the inflation calculator I used, that's $211 today. I question that. I suppose backing up was an option many years before that!
Hey, it's Wagon Wednesday!
Real nice job !
Well, seeing as it's Wagon Wednesday here are a few photos that I took on the trip I just returned from last night in my 65 Valiant wagon to Northern New York where I have a cabin out in the woods . I'm taking it up there 3 times this season before I put her down and do the body. Even with all the rust I get people wanting to talk with me about it everywhere I go . It's a people magnet !
Yes, these A-Body Stations are real people magnets: Everywhere I go people want to take pictures... and even in company with some muscle cars, people cheer more for the Valiant:
I Love that photo !
Great question. I am a Valiant fan, and Always liked how the wagons had them. Wish the car did.
Nice job on the seam filling . BTW backing up was only aloud during daylight hours unless you had back up lights
Do you have any underhood pictures of your 65 you can post ? I have a 65 that will definitely not stay a 225. Thanks
I'll send you some pics but your inbox is full.
Would anyone happen to have a tailgate for a 64 Dart Wagon?
Mine ? There's nothing in mine
That's weird. Tried to start a conversation and it said your inbox was full. I'll try again.
I’ve got an empty one (it’s a 63 or 64 can’t remember) that used to be the power window type but as with 95% of them has rust issues. After I swap out my current gate for a mostly rust-free one I found at the Pic ‘n’ Pull, it’ll be available. It’s a manual window and has the 95% aforementioned rust issues
My gate is pretty rusty, its usable but rusty. Looking for a unicorn..the rust free, for the most part, tailgate..
Good luck on finding that unicorn! The 63 or 64 tailgate come from CA and looked to be rust free. Started stripping paint and dug out at least a half inch of bondo at the bottom.
