Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

After looking at this over and over, I think you're right Pick, the Highlander style with the vinyl 'divider' is the way to go. My better half thinks so too, so now it's settled!

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

A little update on 'Wanda'... On a trip to Texas last Thanksgiving, my girlfriend got a 6 point buck! Problem is, she got him using Wanda Besides the deer and Wanda, no one IN the car was hurt. I tried to source clean GM sheetmetal, but it was hard to find. I had to use an aftermarket hood and left front fender and man was it a bear to get to fit. Was able to find a GM header panel and core support on eBay (above the grille). The rest I beat out or patched up. I got all the parts from Classic Industries.

Luckily I had my little buddy Clyde there (3rd pic) to help me out!

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

surprisingly, the bumper & lower valance weren't damage. I just had the lower valance repainted and put new trim on it. Sadly, the money I had saved up to redo the interior got spent on fixing the car. Hopefully I can get it finished up later this year.

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

And in between, I was working on an older sister to keep her company... Her name is Irma (for Ermine white).

Yeah, he was pretty pissed - I think he likes that car more that I do! Anytime I go anywhere, he's with me in it.

Yes '61 Bel Air Sport Coupe (aka bubble top) it was mostly finished when I got it. It' was an older build. I put on new exhaust, new shocks, fixed the air ride, fixed the busted differential (spider gears), some paint correction/compounding/polishing, and cleaned up wiring & dressed up under the hood. Then a little carburetor tuning and a good distributor recurve and was good to go. She's got a ZZ454, close ratio M21 4spd, & 4.10 rear gears, so she gets a lil thirsty out on the streets but a blast to drive. It's nice to have another 'hot rod' since my C10 hates me and is always causing me heart burn

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

My parents had a 65 or 66 wagon that exact color, also had a 66 blue Byscayne (sp). I would love a wagon myself, they are real popular and expensive now! Great job!!

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

Love the wagon! reminds me of my buddies dads car except his was brown.
As a child I couldn't understand why his wagon was a Biscayne and not an Impala. LOL. Years later I had a 2 door Bel Air, 65 miss it.
Thanks for the thread!

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

Really cool cars! Bummer on the deer incident. I did a similar number on my 65 a few years ago (story and pics on my 65 ss page in signature).

Yours is such a cool wagon!!!

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

Finally got around to getting the a/c in the wagon up and running. It was an original factory air car and still had all the factory pieces in place. I called up Old Air Products (www.oldairproducts.com) and got a ProTen 6 replacement compressor, hose kit, STV upgrade kit (guts the suction throttle valve & allows the compressor to cycle w/134A), a parallel flow condenser and drier. Everything bolted up nicely, I was especially impressed with the compressor. Fit the factory brackets perfectly. I had to make some brackets for the condenser, but it was no big deal. I removed the evaporator, flushed it out, checked it for leaks and cleaned the debri out of the evaporator housing/box.

I threw on some new valve covers while I was in there and painted the accessories & brackets since it was all apart. Those exhaust manifolds will be the next to get some attention, but I didn't want to wrestle with old, rusty exhaust bolts, so for now they're staying as is.

Re: '65 Chevy Bel Air Wagon

couple more. I previously had a Harbor Freight a/c manifold gauge set, but it leaked and wasn't very high quality (you get what you pay for). I got a Mastercool a/c gauge set and a Mastercool a/c hose crimper and they are really nice pieces and made the job easy.
