Default WAGON HO .... 1954 Chevy Handyman

Spent the last few days working with my brother in law on his wagon to spruce up the rear area. Next stop will be the interior shop for a new look.

I like it! That is what mine started as, only difference is it was a 1953 and completely rusted out!

Sweet looking wagon. Have one underway my self. Absolutely love it. I need that roof rack or at least a manufacturer or where you got it.. or how you made it. I have a few ideas on how to make one but that one looks great. Also, what did you do to the suspension and what tire size and wheel are you running? I'm having issues with the rear end and clearance at the outer edge of the wheel wells. Already, had to change out the wheels and tires once. Your wagon looks great, if you have any left over parts, especially the wagon rear floor tire well stainless or know where I can get some, please let me know..
