    my uncle insists that he will restore the wagon in my sig. He has said this for at least 15 years. Was in storage for 35.

      I would suggest saving the windows and regulators. The glass may be gone, but the frames are still plenty usable, and they can be used in the 53-58 C/K's. I had to replace a couple of windows in the '55, and I didn't want to go through the expense of getting new windows made, so when I went to the May meet I picked up some good passenger front and rear windows instead. I can't remember what was all that was involved with the passenger window, but I had to disassemble the two windows for a decent set of rollers that were still in the original passenger window. I also needed a C/K passenger regulator since the mechanism in the regulator in the car had long since rusted and seized. This was another item I was able to get at the May meet for a decent sum. Let's just say for the guy with a C/K that doesn't need everything new, these things can be a heck of a buy if they're still good .
