1966 Volvo Amazon Wagon

A few months back, I heard about a chrome-bumper Midget in a self-service junkyard an hour's drive from me. In need of many small parts for my personal Hell Project, I went to investigate.

Sadly, the Midget had been picked clean by the time I got there, but I was able to get these photos of a fairly complete '66 Amazon wagon. The Crusher has already eaten this car by now, but we can hope that many of its parts lived on in surviving Amazons.

Sigh. Seriously. Was the front end really that bad? I've been looking for a wagon to replace my old '66 coupe and the ratio of 2 & 4-doors to wagons on the west coast has got to be at least 10 or 20:1.

(And from the looks of that engine bay, I'd lay 10 or 20:1 odds that b18 would start right up with a fresh battery and a couple squirts of starter fluid.) Even the steelies look good!
