I got this wagon over a year ago from Mitch at M-E Customs in St. Joseph, MO. This is the picture he put on Layitlow & when I seen it I knew I had to get it! cuz my Dream car was a 59' drop, but the wagon seemed even nicer cuz I never saw one before.

Another classified shot. When I showed the pic to people, they couldn't see what I was so excited about! My uncle said "eww, gross!" & my friends didn't really seem to care either.

So I rounded up a truck & my uncles trailer & drove 5 hours to go get it.(With no License in a truck that had no insurance & an unregistered trailer)

People were giving me compliments the whole way back to Iowa every time we stopped.

The rear window mechanism was rusted shut preventing the window from moving & the gate from dropping so I had to access the mechanism from the inside panel & pull the window regulator out so I could open the gate.

Interior is pretty good with intact seats & couple door panels were decent, but I need to weld in new floor pans front & back.

After I stripped the whole passenger side I put it in primer just to tide it over until I do some sectioning of rust spots & replacing the drivers side quarter.

I dropped out the powerglide, & my plans are to shave the blower motor & clean up the firewall.

THe 1st of this year I moved to Colorado & the Parkwood came with me. I pushed it into my Lean-to, jacked it up onto some 4x4's & jackstands, & rolled the chassis out from underneath it. The chassis was too high so I had to remove the front wheels & drag it through the dirt & concrete on the drums BY MYSELF! Got it out though.
