Saved a Tailgate wagon from the crusher!

Some interesting tidbits:
I found a photo packet in the front seat that shows the car was wrecked real good in the back sometime in the 70's. The previous owner replaced the entire rear driverside of the car from the rear door back, then painted it that fabulous 2-tone. He did excellent work too, you cant tell it was fixed at all :cool:
After the new paint, it apparrently got rear ended again, right in the middle of the tailgate , but again he fixed it absolutely perfectly
This was all done around 1987-1989 or so.
The front seats have new upholstery on them, and the door seals are all like brand new!
At some point Semi-truck air horns were installed under the hood, havent found the compressor yet. Also installed is an aftermarket cruise control system, which appears to be all there, The drivetrain is complete, but I dont know what may be wrong with it.
At any rate, it will make a great addition to my other Tailgate wagon
Im thinking restoring/lowering one, and lifting the other and making it a show stopping 4x4.....

WagonsOnly and ctsuba each have a 71 tailgate and of course Andrew -wagonsonly- has a sweeeeeeettt 73 in that orangish color pretty buffed out.
Still waiting for mine to show up but I'm in no hurry.

not shure but i may have a set of used rocker pannels that dont have much rust if any(need to go out and look at the car if they are ill cut them out if you want them...
Right on! That would be awesome. Let me know what you find and if you have anything else for the tailgate wagons. I need a lot of little parts, so let me know what all you can find! Thanks!

I Like those subies. We got them with the two different back doors' designs here, some of those has a nice badge in cursive letters that says: "Front Wheel Drive" or "Four Wheel Drive"
... I've never seen an FF1 wagon in person ...
I have seen two in my country, here is the picture of one of them sitting in front of a house roadside... and still is driveable.
