Re: My Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with the C.B. and optional rally fun pack

WOW Chris,

I have a Wysong hydraulic shear and a Di-Acro hand brake. My problem is I don't have your hands and brain to use them correctly.

We look forward to seeing you on the tour this summer.

Re: My Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with the C.B. and optional rally fun pack

Tim, we will for sure have fun this summer on the tour!

Doug, I'm planning on MetalMeet but will not have the wagon done by then. Maybe some year in the future, haha!

Side 2 is largely the same as side 1, but with some bigger rust holes. You guys like pictures, so I'll try not to disappoint there. Here's some before of the damage.

Now onto the fixing, this required a fair amount of shaping and I decided to do it in 2 pieces. I used the english wheel to make a reverse in the new panel and that worked pretty good!

I also needed to do some fixing in the door jamb, looking much better now!

I also drilled out any pinholes I found in the outer rockers and welded them back up using a copper backer. Once the outer rockers were fixed I brushed on a couple coats of epoxy primer everywhere I wouldn't be able to access later, and welded on the inner rocker.

Re: My Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with the C.B. and optional rally fun pack

Somewhere while doing all that I rolled my chassis out to get some sun (and to sweep under it). I also picked up a 3rd member for the rear axle, a little more work and I'll be able to get the 4" aluminum driveshaft out of the van cut down to fit!

Re: My Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with the C.B. and optional rally fun pack

outstanding work!

I would have gotten the wheel question on page one right because my brother is building a S/C Rambler.



if you know anyone with a gas tank, his is beyond salvation.

and I couldnt help but notice how the pry bar lined up with your finger in the pictures. extraneous, I know.



anyway, the wagon should be pretty comfortable on the power tour! we went cross country in my moms aries wagon when I was a teen and it was nice with the room in the back to catch a gnap.


oh and I didnt see anyone tell you, but to embed a video just delete the "s" in the url https, and delete the "&" and anything after it.

Super cool to find this! I'm just starting a build on my grandfather's '53 150 sedan and was psyched to find this project! Keep up the good work, and I can't wait to see the end result!

Thanks guys!

Joedoh, not having a useable gas tank is kinda what started the whole trunk remodel on this one. We decided to make a mustang tank work, and then he decided he'd better have the 22 gallon one. In order to not have that hang too far down the trunk floor would have to be raised 2". Might as well straighten out those rear frame rails so wider tires will fit, and then there is the issue of having wheel tubs to deal with....and....and....you see where that went! Tell your brother to treat his rear window like gold, you can't get those either!

Re: My Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with the C.B. and optional rally fun pack

his is rotted from sitting, we have been trying with no luck to find one anywhere.

until today! I drove 200 miles and found the only guy with a spare tank stored inside the last 40 years.




that crud on it is undercoating. he didnt have any back windows, I asked for you. the rambler its leaning on is a rusty 770 convertible.
