I love this wagon, the oldschool appeal. I would like to know what he has done with this car.

when I saw the blower I thought it was a V8 swap, then I saw the last pic and I was happy. This is sick, is there a sound bite? I want to hear it run.

Just looked on youtube, saw some vids.
The beast sounds to be bridge-ported.

That's one hell of a grocery-getter.

I'm gettin a 74 Wagon all original, or as we say in the states all matching numbers from my brother that has too many toys and too many projects. I swapped him my 71 VW Squareback for his RX-4 wagon. My question is: is automatic and I prefer manual. Should I sacrfice originality for preference ???
