    Make an offer, motor mounts guaranteed to be good. Bring two trailers.

    That rear window did not look rusty - from what I could see... That second photo needs to be in a caption contest.

      But... I didn't think metal wagons deteriorated like wooden ones.

        Either way, we should be shot for allowing it to deteriorate outside.

            I couldn't tell if the battery had a proper hold down.

              It looks like the upper tail gate would be good for someone.
              Do you know if that wagon started life in the North? I stopped looking at most collector cars in Florida after I learned that most of them "retired" there with their owners from NY, OH, MI, etc.

                Matt, if the Avanti is sold you'll have close to enough funds to restore this beauty. I'll bet most of those minor blemishes will buff right out! Bill

                  Don't forget a little while back I posted a pic of a rust free unit (complete with tumbleweeds) in very northern Nevada. Albeit I believe it was a '57. You could use Matthews' for any spare parts.
                  I'm sure I could dig it out if anyone is interested.

                    Yes, something like "We Bend Over Backwards to Help You".
