85 Wagon U Pull & Pay Denver
« on: September 05, 2021, 04:00:16 PM »
An 85 wagon just made it into the U Pull & Pay yard in Denver on 9/1/21.  It is a sport model that looks like it has been sitting for quite awhile but it looks pretty complete.  I grabbed a few things - hood release cable, floor gauge console, instrument cluster, rear wiper arm.  Hinges looked decent but I didn’t have time to grab them and besides there was a transmission (?) in the back end lol.

I went back today and picked up the hinges and cargo cover, all in good shape.  I also picked up the left taillight for my own use.

Let me know if you’re interested in any of the things I picked up.  Thanks.

I'd like the floor gauge cluster.

Also did you see the hatchet job in the engine bay?  They RTVed the oil cap down!

Hey I'm heading up there tomorrow morning do you know what their mask requirements are. I tried looking on their website but I don't think that they have updated it in a while as it doesn't list the Eagle.

Well I grabbed the hatch and two of the armrests, as well as a couple of the manual sport mirrors from it. If I'd had the time I would have tried to get the wiring harness for the engine bay but it was such a mess under the hood that I couldn't even really see the bulkhead connector and it's a shame they destroyed the hood like they did because I would have loved to have grabbed that as well.

Glad you were able to grab those things.  I've seen too many Eagle hoods destroyed like they because it seems like they just put the jaws of life to them to get the hood open.  I grabbed the hood release cable and it was in perfect condition so they could have just used that and saved themselves some work!

If you go back I'd like the rear wiper arm. Are those Marchal lights?

What location/address?
Is this the right one? https://upullandpay.com/denver/home/
Considering a cross country drive next month, and want a rear axle. Although I might have my 9year old girl with me so do they allow kids?

vangremlin grabbed the wiper arm as for the lights they are Marcals but they are completely destroyed.
As for your question Taylor they had a sign on the front that said I believe no one under 18 is allowed in but it could have been no one under 16 either way she's too young to go in. And yes that is the right one.

Yeah I think the reason they do that is because they think no one will care and no one wants the part because no one could possibly still own one. And unfortunately I didn't grab everything I wanted to grab off the car, but what I did grab ironically costed me the exact amount I had in my wallet. ::)
