another one?! the "wagonaire" tag is developing nicely. I figured these would all be long-forgotten restoration projects, sitting in fields or weedy side-yards, but every one we've documented seems to be a viable runner to some extent. I can't tell if this one has current tags, but the tires appear to be holding air. wonderful photos.

These photos make this boy born and raised in South Bend very happy.

Mmmm, I love the smell of carbon monoxide in the morning.

Bad ass ride.

Wonderful photos indeed, the shot of that "6,000 GROSS" sticker is insane.

Don't see that anyone has mentioned it, but in a Wagonaire the roof above the back window slides forward into the roof above the driver. This allowed you to stand a refrigerator up vertically in the cargo area. They tended to leak, so they are rare. This one looks like it would disintegrate if you tried to slide it forward. Not all Study wagons were Wagonaire. Also, the Daytona moniker probably indicates a V8 under the hood, so this was a pretty stylish vehicle in its day.
