  • Dueling Wagonaires on eBay

    Two 63 Wagonaires- both on the West Coast, roughly similar condition based on the descriptions.

    First is a 6 stick, second is an 8 stick. Both are No Reserve.

    First was this one:

    A day later this one was listed:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/One-o...QQcmdZViewItem


    The first one was originally listed with an opening bid of $9000! It re-listed with no reserve. Despite having a day's head start, it's still under $400 (could change any minute). The second almost immediately shot up over $2K!

    The second is definitely a nicer car; but the first is still way too low...

    It'll be interesting to see where they go; and if the first doesn't get higher, will the seller honor the NR or pull the listing?

    Time will tell...

    I notice the V8 car is telling askers that it's a fixed-roof version, when it's clearly a sliding-roof Wag. You can even see the sunshine through the open roof in the picture of the folded-down back seat!

      The V8's definitely got a better story and description. Didn't read the questions, though... interesting.

        As a recent convert and new owner of a Wagonaire, I've got both of these on my ebay watch list. The white one is just a bit suspect as it appears it may be hiding some bad news under the paint. Maybe not, but..... The green one does have some rust issues in the rear fenders, but otherwise looks to be a solid car. I will be curious about the floors. Both look like a deal, though.

              I did mention that in my original post..?

              Or did you mean you don't like 63s? I like them better than the 64-66s... but I'd prefer the simpler 62 dash. TEHO, right?

                I also (like Bob A) like a 1963 Daytona Wagonaire better than a 1964-1966 Wagonaire.

                  That Wagonaire vs Wagon issue really has me wondering! Is the Wagonaire nameplate missing? Or is it REALLY a rare Lark Wagon? [:0] [?]

                  The roof is exactly the same on the VERY rare in '63, fixed roof "Wagon", it was bolted in place and the only outside clue was the "carpet moulding" used to close the left and right front/rear side gaps, it was aluminum not stainless and wider.

                  Strangely, none of the pics show any of the headliner, or a good view of the slider portion. It would be quite rare on a '63 Regal like this, and EXTREAMLY rare on a Daytona, to have the sliding roof delete option. [:0]

                  The minimal rust in the rear quarter panel bottoms, does point to it being a fixed roof Wagon, because of it's "fairly wet" Salem, OR. location.

                    ~sigh~ I like Wagonaires - and I like the 63 the most. I take a lot of flack from my kids who think that wagons are totally not cool. If I could afford one, I would get one
