It's no secret I prefer Rebel Wire wiring kits! I like the setup, the wires & definitely the size of the print they use on their wires since these old eyes have trouble reading other companies' kits! I can actually read Rebel's wires without a magnifying glass & they have great instructions! And their tech, Jeremy, is the best! I've made mistakes in the past & Jeremy knew exactly what I did wrong & solved my problem on the spot! And no, I'm not getting paid to say this & did not get a free kit either, but Rebel is offering free shipping if you're a RRR/UDS member! I got the 9+3 kit & I did get free shipping!

http://www.rebelwire.com

I always rewire my cars & this wagon is no exception, the rats nest under the dash was so screwed up even I couldn't figure out how they made the car run with it! I should get the kit in a few days & will begin tearing out all the old stuff over the next few days!

The manual steering box is toast & it appears they only have rebuilt power steering versions for sale but will rebuild your old one. I hope they don't take forever!

I'm trying to get a 700R4 ordered today but am playing phone tag with them!

Things are starting to move along & I look forward to getting it back on the highways & byways!

Default Wipers... yeah!!!

It's always a bummer to deal with wipers if they're dead! Hooked a battery up to the wiper motor on the wagon & was pleasantly surprised!

Wipers... yeah!!!

Wipers are definitely a luxury that I make sure works.
The 200r4 trannies are a good choice but, getting a bit hard to find.
Are you leaving the six banger in it"
Is the drive shaft the weird splined hook up one on the rear end or does it have u-joints?

Iron, It didn't have a motor/tranny which is what I prefer! Gonna have a SBC/700R4! I'm really building it for Mrs Tripper so it'll be a reasonably quiet cruiser that'll burn regular!

The motor is a '73 350 block with a 307 crank which yields a 327... a destroked 350!
