Owner: Tom Gilpin
Location: San Jose, CA
Engine: Chevy 350
Transmission: Chevy 3 speed
Transfer case: Ford model 20
I purchased the wagon from a barber in Jamestown, CA in 1973 (25 years ago). The car has been saved from the graveyard twice. Several body parts were borrowed from a 1956 wagon in 1974. The last time was 4 years ago when I had to rebuild the drive train. Two months ago, I changed the engine from a Chevy 250 to a Chevey 450.
I am putting the final touches on a rebuild. The transfer case and interior are next on the list. I also need a larger gas tank.
PS. The bumper is from a '48 wagon.
