Seller says, "POSSIBLY THE NICEST 2 DR WAGON ON THE PLANET INCREDIBLE"... might be, I don't know- but he could probably say that about the Planet Earth as well!:D

Looks great. Very likely always a Florida or deep south car. No heater. Looks like no overdrive as well. Otherwise, it appears to be a terrific little grocery hauler!

that dash is not right... and also something I would have never thought of... but it looks good.

I'd have been tempted to drop in a 289 though... seems a lot of effort to put into a six.

Why is it the happy half dozen cars are always put down?

The wagon looks nice, but I have a problem with the seller. I see more and more of these documentation/processing fees in eBay listings. They are usually $25 to $75. This guy has an added fee of $299. I think that what you bid on eBay should be what you pay. You shouldn't have to tack on another 299 dollars.

Nice wagon not exactly correct but well done, the spare tire wheel well should be body color not interior color. the dash looks nice altho not correct. I could live with the 6 engine, they are tough. I'm very interested in what the outcome will be, since i own a one also, a V-8 automatic and original paint. The processing fee ($299)would tick me off enough to pass on it.

Gary, I have purchased two vehicles out of Florida from two different people from opposite ends of the state (P-Cola and Miami), both transactions had that $300 fee. Both sellers were dealers and the fee was a Florida fee they have to collect.

I live in Florida and I don't think it is a state mandated fee like on tires and batteries (although I am not sure of that). The cynic in me thinks it is just additional profit. I will see if I can verify that.

It was very nicely redone. Granted there are a few aspects that are not original, but it still looks nice.

Ende at $14,235, reserve not met. Must be the shipping cost from the Planet Incredible to Planet Earth killed it[:o)]
