Neglected to mention, while the suspension was all apart and again after it was back on the ground, I did multiple sessions of degreaser, scrubbing, pressure washing to remove layers of grease and oil build up on the engine and trans. Now I can see orange paint!!

Hopefully you can find that front passenger side trim for the wood and deck this thing out in wood again.

Nice base to work with here

Interior.
Out comes the steering column and drop the dash. Thick layers of dust under here! Blow it out, then cleaning with Simple Green and lots of towels, blow out the heat and a/c ducts etc. Replace the toasted dash pad with a proper colored dark red one from my stash. Clock is sent out for repair, install a dash speaker and the AM/FM works!!

Lube heater control cables and replace broken levers. Aluminum Brightener bath for ash tray, other stuff that escapes my memory right now.

Put it all back, everything works, whoo hoo!!
Chrome polish on column levers chrome, and using red interior paint left over from my maroon SS convert, fix steering wheel cracks, paint and clear.

An unusual feature, this car is a 10B Fremont and has the very early '67 production steering column under dash cover. Later cars don't have this cover or the dash panel provision to mount it. I have a 10C Leeds car that doesn't have it.

----Being a stone long roof slappy I am loving every bit of this. I have never in the last 50 years been without a wagon. They are necessary and yet so endearing! Looking forward to your future endeavors as I can't stop thinking about how nice the convert is!!!....Bill S

Thanks to all who are following along and enjoying this thread!!

More interior.

With the dash all done it's time for more cleaning. I did mention cleaning didn't I??? Clean, clean clean....

With Both seats out the carpet was pulled for a professional cleaning, it turned out fairly well in spite of some wear under the driver's feet. The front seat needed new covers, since Legendary doesn't offer covers for a wagon/4 door, (no split back) my upholstery guy ordered three yards of red vinyl and built covers incorporating the original heat pleated back side and matching the pattern of the original. Two arm rest pads were also covered with this vinyl.

The rear cushions are in nice shape, I cleaned them (and the entire interior) with Adam's Products Interior Detailer (Thanks Dan and Dave!).

Surprisingly, Jani offered to put the seat belts in a mesh laundry bag and run them through the washer, they came out pretty nice. Note that they are optional Deluxe belts.

Moving to the rear....

Mostly uneventful back here. The spare tire well cleaned up well (when's the last time you've seen a well with no rust??). The cargo mat, while intact, is an eyesore, so I have a rubber mat that will cover that area. The jack being in a protected environment has survived very well, with just a light cleaning. The spare wheel also cleaned up nice, note the body color overspray through the slots. The tire of course is a repro.

Now, it's time to raise the hood.....
