pics of my eagle and how I got it
« on: May 12, 2017, 01:54:26 AM »
Here are pics of my eagle. I was told about it by my dad who saw the car for sale in Manawa Wisconsin. It was owned by a Vietnam veteran who is finding it hard to work on stuff due to unfortunate health issues. My dad was kind enough to loan me the $900 to buy the car and I have since fully repaid him back. The car used to be owned by Kenny Buttolph who was a well known car collector in Iola Wisconsin and who attended the Iola Old Car Show for many years. He has since passed away. The car sat since 2001  (16 years).

Nice as long as rust is minimal everything else is replaceable does it have the 258 I6 engine?

My guess is someone broke the hatch glass long ago and the only replacement they could find was one without the wiper motor.
