Pity someone's hacked into the door cards (and potentially the doors) to mount those speakers.

Wow, must admit I haven't actually seen a hatch in the metal myself, and this one isn't far from me either! Certainly looks tidy for it's age.

I know of a couple of hatches here, the hatch is actually pretty big. The Seat Toledo had a similar hatch that when open, well you could stuff a couch in there :D

That's amazing for a 77. Somebody took good care of it. $6900? Probably could get it. It would cost a lot more to restore one. And this one looks original. :woohoo:
I agree about the speakers in the doors. The cards look amazing too. It's missing a cover for the jack and tool storage. I wonder if it's the same one used on the wagon. I have one of those.

If you're thinking of importing it via my place, Tony, just make note:

Needs repair for slipping clutch; Front LH wheel bearing needs replacement but still drivable.

Better to get it flatbedded to my place ;)

Ha Ha I wish I had room. I would keep this one in my garage. Too bad it's not local.
It's been a long time since I saw one of these around here.
I'll keep your offer in mind. :)

Oh yes your wagon! I should dig up the photos I took of that and pop them on here, I don't think I got around to that! So very cool.
