1979 Plymouth OtherBODY:99% Rust Free - 99% Original Paint.
Absolutely norust or rot issuesin any of the places you would expect to see it. Look at the pictures and see for yourself. The underside floor pans and unibody/subframe are as clean as it gets and show no issues or any kind of damage or cancerous rust that I was able to find. The bottoms of the quarters, he doors, he jambs, he rockers, he roof, he hood, he tailgate, heel lips and spare tire well are all immaculate. There is no rot under the hood either.The only body repair I found is on the lower half of the drivers door below the molding that had what appears to be a dent repair and paint work. The rest of the paint appears to be all original. The body is super straight with only a few door dings and a couple of very small dents as is shown in the photos. All doors open and close easily and the rubber door seals are in excellent condition as well. The exterior chrome door handles, ail lights, irrors and rear bumper are very clean and nice. The front bumper has a small dent as is shown in the photos and it has the wrong grille.The aluminum window moldings and stainless trim are in excellent condition with zero dents or dings and could easily be polished to their original lustre. All of the glass is in excellent condition including the rubber trim. The windshield is nice and clear with no laminate separation or milkiness issues but it does have a wiper scratch. Not sure if it could be polished out or not but wanted to mention it. While there are many great features about this wagon the real value is clearly in the sheet metal. No quarters to hang, o floor pans to replace, nd none of the other typical metal repairs you would expect to make on a vehicle this old.
INTERIOR: The interior is complete and intact but has not fared as well as the body in the in the Florida sun. The dash pad is cracked as is typical down here. Also due to heat, ome of the plastic trim pieces have become brittle and are deteriorating. All door panels are in nice condition, he front seat has some splits and the springs feel a bit weak but is certainly repairable. The rear folding seat is in nice condition with no obvious, ears or damage. The original carpet will definitely need to be replaced. The headliner is a perforated hardboard type that still has a nice bright blue color with no noticeable cracks or breaks but has some warping. Truthfully not sure of a remedy, ut worth giving it some thought before discarding it. It is missing a trim panel under the steering wheel that would give access to the fuse block and steering column.
MECHANICAL:The motor is a bullet proof slant six. Starts right up and seems to run pretty good. Doesn't appear to burn oil. Has newer battery, lternator and starter. Odometer shows 35,000 but has turned over at least once I'm sure. The transmission seemed to shift well on the drive home but it is leaking fluid. Has power steering that seems to work well, ower brakes seem to stop OK but grab a bit. The tires hold air but that's about all. It's equipped with a factory A/C system that appears complete but there is no belt on the compressor so I cannot speak to it's condition. It sounds like the air circulation fanbearingis making a rumbling noise so I presume it will need to be replaced. The heater core has been bypassed so it may need a new one as well.
ELECTRICAL: Head, ail, ag, arking,back-upand side marker lights all work as they should. As does the horn, ipers, mergency brake light and ignition buzzer. Even the original AM radio and in-dash clock still work.The dash lights, auges, nd turn signals are not working. I have not checked to see why but if all else in the system seems to work properly so perhaps it is just a fuse or something simple.
GENERAL: It will need a restoration but it is a freakishly solid totally unmolested 36 year old wagon that is all original right down to it's factory mud flaps and owners manual.Nothing has been added and nothing has been taken away. This wagon is the perfect platform for an awesome grocery getter or boulevard cruiser. In the right hands this could be an amazing hot-rod.
I have been as accurate in it's description as possible but please feel free to ask any questions or come by for a personal inspection before you place a bid. Or if you have a specific photo request I will try to accommodate it if at all possible. I have tried to showyou all there is to see, he good and the bad. What you see in the pictures is what you will see in person. I have tried not to omit anything of consequence or that might be important to a prospective purchaser, ut again please feel free to ask questions.
It has a great mid-size body style that turns plenty of heads. And these are becoming just as collectible as their earlier counterparts. This was the last year for the round headlights so If you like wagons and have been waiting for the right one to come along, hen this one just might be "it". I honestly don't think you will find a more workable vehicle of this age any where around, ncluding out west.
RE: Shipping. The cost to hang new quarter panels if you couldevenfind themor the cost to install new floor pans if you could even find them, ould certainly outweigh shipping fees so be sure you consider that before you pass up a great opportunity.
