somebody stripped the grille, headlights and hood from this wagon before the yard got around to taking a photo of it!

I’ll be adding to the carnage today! So much plastic on mine has but the dust so I’m hoping this one has what I need. It’s the same exterior color but a different year, so hopefully the interior matches!

Cruise control! Seems like everything is there, but one plastic cable surround coming out of the “module” under the hood is broken.
The hood is on the roof. Pretty much all of the interior is gone, save for window trim, Rear door panels, rear seat backs and headliner.
I got a remanufactured (and only partially installed?) Holley carb, the driver door, tail lights, valve cover, and the dash surround. I left the cruise control switch, but took all the others.
The valve cover was on finger tight and there was fresh oil on the rockers. I suspect the motor was at least partially rebuilt due to the fact that everything was so loose and the cam looked like it might’ve been replaced. Wasn’t someone on here looking for a cam?
I think this was either a parts car or a project car for a very long time.
Oh also it has a sunroof! But someone grabbed the controls for it.

If the sunroof is not rusty then it is worth grabbing. without the switch just use a large flat blade on the large screw head where the switch was to open and then you can unscrew the panel from above.

I thought about getting some of those goodies to resell but opted to leave it, as my car does not have a sunroof. I am definitely thinking of going back for the ac parts, though.
Also, if anyone has the gumption to pull a transmission on a day projected to be 111 degrees, this one felt like it would be worth the trouble.

Some parts are getting rare, lights, good condition interiors, trim and gearboxes, inclometers Steel sunroof without rust should be able to resell on here at some time. might be worth seeing what they want for it! I always grab small screws and knobs, bulbs as well.

Would you be willing to grab the windshield wiper switch for me, please, along with any control module that it's attached to? I would also be interested in the cruise control parts if you're able to get the complete setup.

Thanks!

Professor, I’ll look into what it takes to remove the switch and let you know if I’m up for it; we’re looking at 110+ for the next few days so I think I’ll be waiting a while before I return. I will get back to you within a week!
