Can not remember who has the Wagonaire list,but here is the low down: 1963 Wagonaire,259-2bbl,3 on the tree with OD, Twin Track,no power steering,no power brakes,manual tailgate window,Rose Mist interior and exterior ,tinted glass and Daytona side trim.VIN 63V35I92, body tag: 63V-P8,2790 which is 12 numbers away from my 63V-P4 Wagonaire at 2778.
I have a decent Rose Mist bench seat and rear fold down seat for the swap meet ,and I learned how to disassemble the sliding roof on this one before tackling mine. The frame and body are midwest rust victims.

I didn't know there was a Wagonaire list. But, I can report one that went to the grave literally back in 1976. I bought a white '63 Wagonaire from the old Bush Olds junk yard in Lenoir, NC for $75 back in 1973. It was missing the 3 spd manual transmission. It did have the sliding roof, power steering and TT options. The engine was an OHV 6 cyl. I used the front fenders, bumpers and various other parts off of it. Local kids broke the glass out. What was left of the car sat behind my Dad and Uncle's auto warehouse for a few years. One day my uncle was doing some earth moving and such with his dozer and asked me if it was okay to push the old car in a ditch and cover it up. I said "yes."
