Hello:
Looking to purchase a 55 Wagon. Ideas on pricing. No project car, finished and ready to go. Also wondering where to look for trim parts, such as the regal trim.
I have noticed some fender spears on a few cars- after market or factory?
Many thanks for the guidance

Kwahl -

Hey, almost welcome (no wagon yet..!).
It took me almost 6 years to find my first 54 wagon that wasn't held together with Bondo and bailing wire.
They are out there, but to find a nice driver, you can't be concerned about hopping into a plane and going across country for its first real-life viewing.
Expect to pay $10,000 / $12,000 or more for a clean version.
Check for rust repair, check for current rust in the front floors and rear quarters.

Good luck and send pictures when you do find one.

Once you buy your Connie than let us know what trim parts are needed and we will point you in the right direction. Might even be able to help with some left overs of my own.

I now have the wagon and drove it from Roseburg Oregon
Could not keep it under 80 MPH
Built an new rear end and swapping it out this week
A little on the Ownership history

After it was purchased by John Louraine of Washington from the Ohio owner, it was then sold to Robert Halgren of San Diego, who sold it to Dennis Napier of Roseburg Oregon who sold it to me and it is now back home in San Diego. So I am owner #5

Bob Halgren built the car with a restoration and an engine swap with a n r2 Avanti and 700 R4 Transmission. I will be doing some mods and post new pictures.
