1973 SS454 wagon

I have an opportunity to buy a 1973 SS454 wagon. The owner says that it is the real deal with numbers matching motor and window sticker; no build sheet. I have not seen the car, but he says it is disassembled and needs a complete resto including floor pans. I didn't know they made these, but the seller sounded knowledgeable and confident in his documentation. Does anybody here have any knowldege of these cars? Even if is the real deal, is it desirable enough to restore? I would not be looking to keep it; maybe buy/sell right away or buy/restore then sell.

If this kind of car really turns you on, then go for it - but only if you plan on keeping it for a long time. By the time this car was made the 454 was pretty much the same thing found in pickup trucks, and this wagon probably weighs more than a 1/2 ton pickup. In other words - expect liesurely performance. They are super comfortable to cruise the highway, and do a good job as a tow car.
