gauges

Nice gauge package. Looks like what came in the Caprice that year. Never seen one in a wagon though. Keep them. You have an interesting car and wagons although to me have always been cool, they have gained popularity and exceptance by most people these days. I say build it 99% stock except some wheels and tires and mild work on the motor.

Sweet ride! If you can make the 454/4 speed combo work, that'd be awesome!

Although a 454 4-Speed would be interesting, there is nothing like an all original car of interest, like you have, especially with the Factory 3-Speed Manual. I don't have a dollar figure on what it is worth, except that it would be worth more restored all original.

Except for the wheels though. Even though I would search for a set of the original type Deep Dish Factory 14 Inch Wagon Wheels and Factory Hubcaps to just say that you have them, the Rallies are pretty cool.

The 327/275 that you have there is also one of the best engines Chevy ever built.

Those Gauges are the ones that go with the Factory Console on a Super Sport or a Caprice as Jeff has mentioned. If they are factory original in your wagon, that would be pretty rare and extra special.

the gauges came mounted under the dash but i think you are correct that they would have come from a console setup, the mounting points just dont look right, does not fit smooth under dash.

so far this is my plan, original 327 with a bit of dress up, nice dual exhaust, 4 speed definatly, corvette rallies with clear coat over patina. redo front seat and get a carpet set, no butchering other than hole cut in floor for shifter, then if i decide to sell her i can put it all back together stock, or if not happy with 327 i will bolt in the beast!!!!!454
