13 years after I sold my '71 510 wagon: I finally have another wagon! Driving down the street last week with my friend, I spotted this wagon in someones back yard. After a couple visits and no contact made: my friend spotted the guy getting his mail and a deal was struck today! It has been sitting since 1988 and appears to have less than 30000 miles on it...L18 with a 4 speed. I am the second owner! It will need a good cleaning...nevertheless: I'm excited and happy to have another wagon!

I would tape off the primer color and get close to the same color with Krylon it will match over time as Canned paint fades. Bam! done then buff out the rest and lower it and roll.

Its the perfect color already


Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

Thanks man! Yeah I'll let you know on my parts needs, right now I've got a line on the door and bumper that I need. If you need anything let me know! I've got 620 stuff mostly, but I do get to the junk yards a lot...Good luck with your build too!

Thanks man! Not much time when you're a Truck Driver. However, I'm really excited to start working on it: I'm kind of in the research phase right now, as I only really know 620's. An update I can give: I have received a response on my wanted ad and have secured a rear door for the driver side. More to come...
