What's Better than an AWD, Manual Wagon?

How about one modified to be a pseudo-Subaru Baja?



This was once an AMC Eagle wagon; but someone took an angle grinder to it and added too much diamond plate.  The end result is a not-so-weatherproof mini trucklet with a carpeted bed.  Wasn't that one of the downfalls of the Lincoln Blackwood?

Fittingly bidding sits at $666 at press time. That's not a lot of money, you'll have to decide what this is worth.  Also, the reserve hasn't been met; so who knows whether this will sell.

Profile is just as groovy.  Wheels should be familiar to anyone around Jeeps in the 80s and early 90s.


The front...well, we're not sure what all is going on there.  Bumper appears to be a rear unit from something else - perhaps the Cherokee that gave up its wheels for this car?  Mesh?  Check!


The "bed" is still carpeted and it


This "closed" shot reveals the full tailgate and some attempt at sealing off the rear.


Delightfully brown interior with plenty of faux wood grain are awesome; but the clutch pedal and shifter mean business.  Yes, that's a hint of cool, plaid cloth, too. Considering the apparent lack of security in this car, the lack of a radio might be a good idea, although we're not sure two-shaft radios get stolen anymore.


Let's get one more look at that cloth.
