    You guys have some VERY nice wagons. Here's mine.

    Soon to start a build thread. It's awaiting a 347 with TF205CNC heads, big Comp Cam, and a small shot of juice. As it is, It has ran a best [email protected] Plans include bigger brakes, stronger 5 speed new paint and wheels.

    Hey 79, nice to see another cutlass wagon getting built! Great fab work on the tail...

    Frank- Cool project, if I were a Ford guy I'd be after one of those too.

    Adam- Nice Chevelle! Got a build thread? Those are some wide meats, what size?

    Thanks Ben. No build thread yet ... it has been really slow going and not quite as interesting as most other on here to be perfectly honest. The wheels are Vintage Wheel Works V48s - 17x9.5 fronts with 275/45s and 17x11 rears with 315/35s. Cheapo Sumitomo HTR-Z tires all around for now. In lieu of a build thread, here is a quick rundown of what I have done to the wagon -

    It started life as a three row, nine passenger wagon with a 2bbl 350 and a Th350 tranny. The previous owner repainted it the factory Mojave Gold and made it into an SS "clone" (there were no real SS wagons in 1972) by adding an SS El Camino hood w/stripes and badging all around (including 454 badges which I quickly removed). It still has the stock drivetrain but I am in the process of installing a Gen3 5.3 which I hope to turbocharge in the future. I'm also going to switch out the stock 8.2 ten bolt rear with either a 12 bolt or Ford 9 inch as well as beef up the TH350 or throw in a 6 speed for a little more fun factor. So far, I have added pretty much the standard off the shelf stuff you see on a lot of other A-Bodies -

    Eibach springs, Bilstein shocks and UMI sway bars
    All new Moog steering parts
    AFX spindles with Corvette C5 front brakes
    SPC adjustable upper and lower front arms
    UMI adjustable upper and lower rear arms
    LS1 rear discs (not yet installed)
    Wheels/Tires

    Just like everyone else's project... it will probably never be done, but that is part of the fun. Glad some other people enjoy it as much as I do! I'll probably throw some more pics up when I really get into the motor swap.

    What can I say... just got inspired to tear into the wagon today! Front clip is coming off nicely. I get the feeling this is going to turn into a frame-off. Uh oh.

    Nice revival! Nice wagon! Here is my Daddywagon! Power is from fuel injected 351w. Transmission is tremec 3550 5 speed manual. Suspension and braking is mustang cobra, including 2004 mustang cobra independent rear suspension. I have a few build threads out there including one here. I almost daily drive this car. Future plans include cobra r brembo front brakes, 6 speed manual transmission, more engine, and an overall cosmetic restoration which will include a fox mustang dash and console. The secret which isnt so secret anymore is fox chassis compatibility. Because the 1985 Ford LTD station wagon is a fox chassis car I can use mustang parts on it. The fox chassis goes from 1979-2004. SN95 is just a longer reinforced fox chassis. The aftermarket for this chassis is tremendous as well. I was able to build this car in my driveway because it is primarily bolt-on!
