This is my latest venture, a 1952 Roadmaster Estate Wagon. Only 359 of these babies were produced in the Roadmaster (79) Series, so there are probably not many left today.
I have got a head start on the frame, having cleaned it up and painted it, including all the running gear.
The main body is the biggest challenge, so far.
The floors were pretty rusted, so all the jagged edges were cut away. I have a 4 door sedan with good floors, so they will be used to fill in the gaps. The wagon A-pillars have a gusset above and below the floor, and usually the top ones are gone, so I had some made.
(I have a few pairs, if anyone out there needs some.)
First, I will use my Harbor Freight sandblaster to clean off the roof, then I will take it to get professionally sandblasted and primered. Then on to the task of removing the floor from the sedan.
I parted out a 52 Roadmaster 2 door hardtop a few years ago, and it had a great front clip & hood (light blue), so I will use these on the wagon.
I recently was very fortunate to pick up some really nice original wood, which I will supplement with some new that I will make.
I have a long way to go, but will try to keep this thread updated, Mike
