Seller’s Description:
The third generation of the modern estate wagon began in 1977 and would make a run through 1990 as its final year before the platform changed. These models would be the pinnacle of family transportation for so many Americans. In fact, you drive this thing through town and I guarantee that you will multiple people with childhood memories. These cars were highly optioned and were extremely comfortable for up to eight adults with its rear facing seat that has become extinct today. This particular car has traveled just over 70,000 miles from new and is in unbelievable condition in and out as well as mechanically.

The consignor of this automobile has an affinity for these large woodie wagons and knows them in and out. He purchased this car a couple of years ago and went through and took care of any need, big or little. Some of the things that were done is a proper A/C retrofit that works perfectly. A re-built carburetor, fluid flush and tune-up. New tires and brakes as well as a new head-liner. Based on the condition of the car it has been well taken care of, stored correctly and not driven in the snow and salt. The interior shows like new and the car runs down the road very nicely. The rear window goes up and down as do the rest of the windows. All lights work as does everything else except the power antennae that has not been addressed. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer one.

Price: $12,900
