Ok, Will enter my Lakewood this month. Attached is a video by the owner of the car who sold it to someone in IN who then listed it for sale using the same video. It is a nice drive around video and shows the car off well. The Wire wheel covers are gone. Correct NOS trim rings and dog dish caps installed now. Also, have added the fold down board behind the seat. Detailed the engine compartment and put a 64 Diff in it so it has a speedo cable hook up now.

It has a 66 110 w/PG.

And I have adjusted the lifters! New muffler too.

Rear NOS arm rests are on and front ones will be on by Helen.

:goodpost: :coolphotos: That appears to be one nice 1961 wagon! For convenience I went ahead and embedded the YouTube video in your post. If you edit your post you can see how it is done, using the "share_youtube" feature and embedding the URL from the YouTube web page. (Be sure to use the "Share" URL that appears when you click on the word "Share". Do not use the URL at the top of the screen that is displayed by the Web browser. The correct URL source location is displayed in the screen capture below).

The upgrade to a 1966 110 hp engine makes sense, since it provides more horsepower and torque, an alternator-based charging system, a very reliable 110 hp engine, a PCV system instead of a road draft tube, and improved carburetors with automatic choke and the newer distributor design. It should be a reliable setup. Has the distributor been upgraded to utilize a breakerless ignition (Crane or Pertronix), or are you still using ignition points? Such an upgrade can increase reliability even further.

Brad, Put a Pertronix II on it right after I bought it. Funny thing, the coil died at K'noxville on the way to check out the Hiwassee Park location. Got it back, diagnosed it, walked into Clarks and bought one. Then the P-II died the next month. Changed it out and been running fine since. I go no where without a coil, P-II and a belt. Cheap insurance policy!
