I am interested in getting started retoring a 122 station wagon. There is only one in Hot SPrings, AR that I know of and it's in a junk yard. The floor pans are. . . well. . . practically non-existent. Where do I begin? Are there replacement pans or do I get a welder to weld in sheet metal? Is it worth it? Or should I find a decent car and use this as a parts car? Any input would be helpful. Thanks!

Welcome to Swedespeed, Reverend Pelton.

Do you now own a 122 wagon?

If not, resurrecting a junker may be very expensive and result in an unsatisfactory car.

Really nice drivers are available for under $5,000 and my perfect, all-original '68 is yours for $20,000 firm.

Re: 122 floor pans (gdill2)

I have debated about buying a already drivable wagon and using this junker nearby as a parts car. I have found 2 in distant states that I have considered purchasing. . . but not for $20,000!!! Take a "0" off the end and that would be more like it. Thanks for the advice.

Re: 122 floor pans (pelton)

You can get replacement floor pans from http://www.vp-autoparts.com . They used to carry two types: a cheap one that doesn't fit, and a more expensive one that fits very nicely. You can guess which I'd recommend...

Replacing the floors is not a major deal, but check the box sections below them for rust. If those are crumbling too, the car is likely to fold in half. Those are less easy to fix.
