Don't see these every day. It'll be interesting to see what this goes for. Says it "will be" running, which makes me wonder why he didn't just wait a few days to get the car running before listing it. Body looks great. Factory AC. Love the roof rack. Not many pics of the interior, so no idea what other options could be lurking inside.

Everyone should realize that these reserve auctions use a very unrealistic reserve just to see how high it will bid to, then set a price higher than that. Reserve auctions are a joke.

I saw it last around $9,800 before it got pulled. I guess someone made a serious offer.

Super rare wagon and a great survivor to get back on the road!

Not sure if I have ever seen those little chrome decorations on the top of the front bumper before. Very cool wagon ! That would be cool to just clean up and drive. I'll bet it would look amazing.

WTF is this???? Are these all ashtrays or something???? And what's that next to the spotlight handle on the passenger side??? Another ashtray???? Did the previous owner drive around with a bunch of chain smokers or something? There's even matches all over the floors....

That add on pocket to the door panel was undoubtedly to hold all the packs of cigarettes.

My dad's old Mark IV had seven ash trays in it from the factory, and I thought that seemed like a lot. Wow! The person that owned this wagon traveled with someone that was a smoking connoisseur. I bet you can still smell it today.

It is a wagon after all...it was most likely bought by a family man who smoked, and had a wife who smoked, and naturally their 6 children also learned to enjoy relaxing with an unfiltered Camel after a long day at preschool.

And everyone of them has their own ash tree at passenger side

Ok, but what are the special red knob ashtrays for?

I've seen some weird goofy stuff people do to their cars. This one is definitely up there on the strangeometer.

The funnel to the far right on the dashboard must be a vacuum ashtray (aftermarket option)

Hoses went to engine vacuum and jar. Ashes were accumulated in the jar. (YE-UCK)

I had no idea such a thing even existed! Makes me wonder just how much these people smoked that they needed a dozen ashtrays in addition to a huge mason jar.

I guess we solved the mystery of why they called it "Puff the Majic Dragon"

It does look like the dragon has a cigarette hanging out of it's mouth!
Does anyone know if this car sold or did the owner end the listing the second time for reasons unknown??
I had talked to the owner and requested pictures of the engine number and underside photos. After that request he hasn't responded. He did tell me wanted at least 23K for the car. Any comments on that amount for the smoking dragon car?
