Midsize wagon?
 
is it a B16 or B18?

Also, if ya do end up with something Volvo, it's still possible to find parts for those over here in scandinavialand.

as it's lacking a carb, you can just use one from anothe B16 to B23 type engines, they mostly fit. it's the triple digits ones that can be different, had to swap the intake on my first car to get the carb from a B21 onto a B200K.
Not sure what engine. The last one I looked at had the B18.

There's several suppliers for small parts here in the US. Prices seem fair.
 
Those Toyota vans just continue to be damned ugly. I remember going on a trip as a kid in one dad had rented. This was back before unlimited mileage. He may have disconnected the speedo cable for about half the trip... :lol:

The 510 Wagon is a dream car of mine, but at those prices, the dreaming will continue.
 
Those Toyota vans will supposedly do endos if you brake hard enough.

Opel Gasser - FUCK YES! The fact it's titled and street legal is the best part.

1965 Dodge 880 - That is a great looking car. Love the woodgrain and red interior with the white paint.

1973 VW 412 - Did we ever get these here in the US? I thought this was a Brazil only thing.

1965 Ford Fairlane - Like that it's a column shift manual V8, but hate that it's rotted away in SLC.

1981 Honda Civic - LOVE IT! I had one of these as my first car, bought it for $400. Guess I should have hung on to the thing...

1981 Subaru - Beautiful example of that car. Price seems a bit steep though.

1973 Olds - That is HUGE! You'd need 40 acres to turn that rig around.


EDIT2: Made one, but its locked down until I can format it and get a bot set up. Might need some help from more reddit-savvy people.

I'm not Reddit savvy, but I'll be happy to add finds to it!

I'll open it up when I get the archiving bot running (talking to a few guys that made one and seeing if if they can add it to my sub) and the rules working. Right now all I want is a rule to remove non-CL links and a rule to get the submission title to match the CL title. So far I got the first one to work, but my second rule deletes ALL submissions and I can't figure out why.

Enlighten me on the old Merc diesels. Rust, I'm at this point is a factor, but what other things would I want to look out for?

I don't know much about them either. I am sure there is a knowledgeable person out there though.

All old Merc diesels are reliable to a fault, but dead slow.
 
So it needs a Cummins swap then? :evil:
 
I remembered that Lincoln had a BMW diesel option. Had to find some...

Damn, I really want this one. The Comet was such a good looking car. It doesn't help that my dad had a 1964 Comet drag car and I always wanted a wagon.

These are very curious. The styling was very conservative for the mid-60s. I like it, but that price... ugh.
