Looking at the pics I assume the engine is history... Nice model though.

Sorry about your cousin, i understand how its hard to work on a vehicle after the person that owns it dies, it was hard for me to drive my dads truck after he passed. But iam glad its getting rebuilt and your model wagon is going to be cool, keep the updates coming. Would love to see a picture of both of them done.

Hey Jairus, that is a cool looking wagon.... Dillon, your model should come out pretty cool... good luck with it and be sure to show us pictures when it's done.
