I have the same wagon. GL1600 1979 and the color is "Brilliant Red." She's almost completely restored. I am also looking at a new engine or rebuilding the one I have. I found a guy in Utah that sells rebuild kits for our engine. About $450 for the complete kit. I think I have a project for the summer rebuilding the engine in my garage. The way it looks I figure when all is said and done I will have about $1000 in the engine to rebuild and get it back in the car.

That's the guy's website if you are interested.

Good Luck.
