    I have decided to get a larger tool hauler and stop taxing my beloved little wagon. In an effort to pay less insurance and have one fewer car in front of our house I have decided to sell. $4000 will include the Abarth wheels on low mile tires. I will take and post photos this weekend as she currently sits. The paint shines quite well if buffed out but with a no garage situation will look faded within 3 weeks. There are some small rust bubbles but no perforations. It does have my logos on it which will need to be removed and I imagine will show shadows. It has been my daily driver and is still a perfect runner/driver albeit a very slow one.

    Thanks

    I SOOOOO WANT THIS! Uff..

    I think it's sexy. I'd even leave the decals, they look great :) *sigh* -> I WANT IT! Pretty nice price too! It would make a great car to boot around in.

    Here are some photos of the car as she sits. The overall cosmetic situation is "tired" the paint as I said fades quickly after a wax job makes it shine. There are small areas of surface list here and there. The interior is more of the same, I feel sad to say I should have been taking better care but this being a vehicle for my busy woodworking business which is a very physical job makes it hard for me to find time with the energy wax was the car, remove all contents, vacuum the interior...some of you know the drill Im sure. That all said the car starts, runs, drives, brakes (one new caliper recently replaced a leaky one which ruined the paint on one of the wheels. These wheels were restored by me using high quality epoxy primer and automotive paint using the techniques found here https://stevekouracos.com/restoration/tips-and-tricks/aluminum-magnesium-wheel-restoration/

    The front door cards need to be removed, cleaned and the window mechanisms need to be lubricated and "repaired" because neither of the front windows is currently working. This is a very recent issue and I haven't gotten around to it yet...

    I am not desperate top sell the wagon and in fact my wife is trying to talk me out of it so this week I am going to visit a few body/paint shops to see what I might be able to do to restore it and adding another decade or so to my stewardship but in the meantime if anyone is interested please let me know.

    thanks all
