    Oh...sooooo close Matt!! The ONLY reason Bob's going to turn that one down is because the interior is RED, and not BLUE!

      Yea, I'm sure that's the only reason.

        Y'know Matthew, I think your title assumes Bob's heart is strong... hope you're right!

          VERY funny, Matthew.

          You knew I'd reject it because the battery hold-down is missing...[:0] BP

            Battery hold down?

            I've got a correct one I'll toss in.

              Looks like a disk brake rim on the front. Could be a full package R2 loaded with disk brakes, etc? Better check it out further Bob.

                    what would it take to convert a fixed roof to a slider? [?]

                        Bob P, there is a local couple that has been teasing me for a couple of years about a Wagonaire that they own. It is supposed to be in Colorado, and they seem to want to sell it. But, they are evasive when it comes to information about the wagon/asking price.

                        They have mentioned this car to me at a local show, two years in a row, but I can't seem to get them to give me the information I need to pursue, or offer to the forum. I get the impression that they don't want it, but might think it is worth more than it is. (Or, that they fear getting taken on the deal.)

                        I have no idea what color it is, what options it has, or any thing else. Indications are that it is a car that has been in one side of the family or the other for some time and is in storage, probably in a family garage. Implications are that it might drive, and that they don't want it, but don't know what to do about it.

                        Want me to try to hook you up with them? They may frustrate you as much as they have me, but the monkey would be off of my back. <G>

                        DAVE, THE EVIL TWIN FROM OKLAHOMA
                        Yes, Dave; I'd appreciate the connect. I have few requirements, but they are mandatory: Must be a 1964 Daytona Wagonaire in factory Astra White. Must be factory Astra White; no color changes from something else. Sliding roof preferred, but fixed OK. Any engine/transmission combo is OK. Any interior color or seating arrangement is OK. With or without third seat; either is OK.

                        Must be driver quality or better; no projects. South Bend production greatly preferred; would consider Hamilton if price and condition were right.

                        Let me know. (Perhaps you can smoke out from these people that theirs is a Golden Sand Commander Wagonaire or something and then you'd know not to pass my information along to them, for example.)

                        Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks. BP

                          This car was a regular 289 Flight O Matic car, nothing too special. The engine ended up in a 2R5 pickup, after being bored to 314 c.i.

                          The front sheetmetal is still around too, including those HEAVY front end weights. [xx(]

                          No idea where this car came from. We got it from a guy in GA, a few hours drive from us.

                          BTW, it doesn't have disc brakes.

                              BP stipulates: "Sliding roof preferred, but fixed OK."

                              So, what sort of OK fixes to a sliding roof would you accept?[}]
