hey guys update on the blue and red wagon sourced from albury wodonga no in my hands.

on closer inspection the blue one has a body that all aligns. no evidenc of damage at all.

the burgundy one however has unrepaired damage affectng front reo, bothfront strut tower sheetmetal (between tower and popups along the top its crimped) and rear pass 1/4 scrub aswell. it also has a lot of paint flaking off and in big chunks aswell indicating a respray and a skim of bog over most of the passenger side bonnet popups and maybe more.

as such i've decided to grab the best of everything and dry store it in the blue one on my pareents farm awaiting time and oney or someone who has both. (or who has oney and thinks they have enough time lol)

the red ones and the worse of any duplicate parts will be available f.s.

that means a rooflining with the tiniest of ting tears and a rear seat with a metal rod poking through. not big deals but the worst of whats on em.

the entire red shell will also be available rolling with all undamaged bolt on panels. we have started removing everything broken to see whats what and can then get more accurate damage asesments.

we also have some rust cuts for it. i ddnt mention it has had a battery leak which has eaten through the tray and started at the chassis rail. still saveable but it definately needs work this shell. doesn't appear twisted or anything.

blue wagon. the new rolling storage shed



it seems that high-fill will prepsol off aswell with time.



the stash of removed goodies



working on the burgundy one


and the broken / ****ty / bent / not a calais item pile





found in the blue one - one tradie sock cover, one large section of foam, 1 roll of sandpaper, all in the rear 1/4's!

and in the red one a dec 2011 metcard. seems it hasnt been off the road all that long.

sad news, the kid who bought the car hadn't told his dad he'd bought a car so it was re-loaded onto my car trailer and dragged home.

so still up for sale.

Clever wording about an original turbo driveline...not whether it was original to the car or not though.

Yeah, chassis number dates it to about March '87. Hard to tell if it's even a HDT one without seeing the rear compartment.
