Well, first plan is to get it registered as "light truck" here. Only way to drive it at affordable road taxes. (normally around 2000 dollar a year !). The "light truck" registration includes removal of rear seats and putting a load floor in the rear. Not a problem as it already is there as it was a funeral car. Changing the registration from funeral car to light truck takes some months, but winter is coming, so I wasn't planning to use the car any way.
As for further plans; I want to keep it quit stock. Gonna paint the roof with Plasti-dip mat white. If it looks good I can get a permanent white paint later on. Gotta check about lowering the car a bit too, but that also is a bit of a problem with our yearly tech inspection. Should be something that can changed back to stock hight quickly and air-rides aren't allowed here :-/
Did this quick photoshop render of the white roof, and I think it will look quit good!
Looking at doing something unusual, since these came powered by an Oldsmobile 307 I have been speaking to some Oldsmobile engine builders about putting together a stroker for it and getting a built 200-4r. It appears to be a 10 bolt 8.5 inch rear, does anyone know if this vintage came with posi? It seems wagons of this generation have never been a popular choice to throw money at so information is limited.
