Front wheel drive 79 wagon with right around 100K on it. I snagged three parts from it but if you own one of these and are local you really should go check it out. Its at Action Auto Salvage in Aurora CO , a pull a part yard with decent prices.
Its kindof a golden yellow color and its an automatic.

I grabbed the carb shield, DL emblem and the Automatic emblem from the rear lift gate. $3/ea plus cheapie shipping. Emblems are in VERY good condition. The car has A/C and the weirdest clutch fan setup I have ever seen on a Subaru. Sadly the car looks like it would drive out and except for the tops of the fenders is pretty much rust free.

Boy, if someone had some tin snips, I could use the sheet metal on the right lower area, right behind the rear wheel. (The painted exterior metal, from the bottom up 6". Makes for an easier repair.

Well, the one at Action must have made someone unhappy.
And it looks like they pusished her with a forklift. :(
They destroyed that little wagon. Looks like maybe they tossed it off the roof too. There's not much left worth snatching.

Federal auto parts in Riverton Wy has 2 70's wagons in real nice shape. One has hood vents, the other doesn't. Most all the interior and exterior was there. Didn't look too close, we were tresspassing after hours. It's a closed yard, so I'd suggest doing the same and then asking to buy the whole car.
