    1952 Plymouth Suburban

    Have a guy wanting to trade me a 1952 Plymouth Suburban for my 1970 AMC Rebel SST Wagon. Was wanting to know on the Plymouth were can I get the wiring upgrade to make it a 12 Volt system & is it hard to change over? What alternator would fit the car? After I upgrade the wiring plan to upgrade from generator to alternator. For right now that would be about it would need to do new plugs & wires & distributor etc.. was told car cam from Florida & has about 60K on it & has been sitting for a few years.

    That is before & after shots put some color on it real fast over the weekend in between it raining. It still needs the over spray cleaned up an some other stuff but not bad for $50 Rustoleum paint & primer somebody painted it light blue at some point this is Aqua Blue. Going to have it painted right later on just right now wanted to sand all the surface rust off an protect that body & now work on getting it running & then do the body work on it.

    1970 AMC Rebel SST Wagon

    I am on the AMC forum to & I am going to buy some books on it & already wrote Chrysler Historic & see what they say. Going to get all the parts I need this winter an plan to have it on the road by spring. The guy I got it off of said everything was in the back when I got the car home found several things missing so got to see what all I am missing. Also this is a factory A/C car & somebody took all the A/C setup off the car so I am going to put it all back on next year as well.

    On the windshield washer pump would mine be electric or Vacuum? Also missing the windshield wiper arms. On the windshield washer pump would I want to upgrade it to better system or keep factory setup?

    yea found all the parts I need but that so far as well as all the books on it. Plan to get it on the road & drive it. Then plan to buy a International Travelall in a 6 cylinder 4wd to use for my dogs an haul stuff in general. Those 2 will be my daily drivers when done.

    1970 AMC Rebel SST Wagon

    yea I found all the parts I think I need just need to see if mine came with windshield washer jug & also noticed it did not have a over flow jug for the radiator. i don know if these were not available in 1970 for my car or they are just missing. Need to get a build sheet & brochure & research what the car came with as far as factory options & what accessories were available for it. Also like to check about changing out the AM radio later on to a AM/FM radio.

    Single car club decision

    You could stay with the AACA & go with a antique Ford club & just keep those two.

    1970 AMC Rebel SST Wagon

    SST is Super Sport Touring & its in pretty good shape needs some body work but not bad just floorboards. Its 360 2bbl 3 speed column p/s p/b factory A/C & original color was Matador Red & Frost White it has black vinyl seats not bench. An original owner added blue to the bottom section of it so it is red white & blue. Red on top white on center & blue on bottom. I know 70 was last year for Rebel & according to www.classiccardatabase.com there were 6846 made in Rebel SST Wagons for 1970. How many with my options & color dont know. The car is not in bad shape needs little work to get it back on the road. The guy I got it off of said guy he got it off of took the trim an stuff off of it need to put that back on & get a driver side rear window & replace front floorboards, battery, alternator, filler neck & A/C compressor. Everything else looks good on it.
