Well off into the sunset she went last night. Sold in two days on eBay and held a month for a planned trip to Seattle for a niece’s graduation. The 1,600 mile adventure to Iowa begins. I asked for nightly texts of his progress. Ellensburg was the first stop-over, at 100 miles. Reported “she ran real fine”. On to Idaho today.........
Seems like a real Mopar guy. Sent the enclosed pic of his shop and one rig. Also showed me a pic of his really nicely restored ’35 Dodge coupe, that is almost too nice to drive.
Says he plans to drive the wagon as is and enjoy it.
Hello ’62-’65 list..........
Thinking about selling the wagon - thought to offer it to the list first - like any of you need another MoPar.
Hate to - but just downsizing prior to retirement. Let me know if interested - or know anyone who would be. Seattle/Tacoma area.
Many list members have seen my posts, and know the work she has seen under my watch.

My grandparents bought this car in 1969 - I began the rebuild in 2012. Spent its life in Malden, a little town close to Spokane. Starts, runs, sounds and drives better than new. List of new installed parts much longer than the highlights shown above. Also many tough to find wagon specific NOS, original and new spare parts will be included. Mint spare grille and full surround trim, side body trim, tail lights etc. Mopar specialty tools etc.
I have NEVER seen another ’62 Dart wagon in person, not even at the annual August all MoPar show in Graham. She won “Best Unfinished” there in 2013 even prior to much of the work listed. People just love the old station wagons.
Price is firm - no trades - downsizing prior to retirement.
