  • Beware this Wagonaire

    If anyone is considering this Wagonaire, please be careful. It says in the ad that the interior and exterior is in excellent condition. Not so. The paint is poor with scratches showing from under the paint. There is a crease on the side of the car which was painted over. The chrome is not good and the interior is scary. The dash is cracked. The headliner is recovered with a modern style felt which is now sagging. The rails for the sliding roof are rusted on the inside of the car. There is rust through in the floors. There is about an inch of camber movement in the front wheels from the kingpin bushings being so worn. I was quite shocked at seeing the car. I was hoping to find a nice looking car for that amount of cash.
