This is a Rat Rod. It is not perfect, but built to be just that, less than perfect. If you are not a Ratter, you should look at one closely to see how it is done. I would say my wagon is MUCHnicer than most rats, but it is still a true rat. With extras (power steering and brakes with disc front, tilt wheel, etc).
There is no rust on this wagon. It is very solid. The paint is flat brown patina. The frame is solid as can be.
The front and rear tires are in very good shape, the white walls are a skirt type wall that you can put on any tire. They are not perfect but look OK, especially for a rat rod.
The motor is a mild 350. Basically stock with headers. The carb is a Holly. There are no oil leaks of any type.
There are no windshield wipers; I never intended to drive it in the rain !
An electric fan is also in place by the radiator to help keep things cool. Just another extra that most rats don't have.
The car has always been stored indoors !
