70, 71, & 72 Wagons

1970, 71 & 72 Wagons are very similar, as you can see in the picture I took at the Spring 2001 Carlisle, PA swap meet. During the years of 70 to 72, Chevelle wagons were only available in 4 door versions. In 1970 the wagon along with it's cousin Chevelle, received a body design change. The majority stayed the same as 68 & 69 with exception the the tail lights, head lights, grill and dash board being some of the biggest differences. Among many other things this changed the radiator support, fenders, hood and the doors received safety steel bar inside.

Pete Lohr's  100% original 1972 Concours Estate:



     This baby has survived thirty-some years now completely unmolested! It is practically 100% original. It has only 51,000 documented miles on it. This car has the original paint, rubber seal, motor, spiral shocks, interior, wood grain down to the hubcaps... all the chrome is perfect and only a few tiny specks of rust. I have the sticker window and the build sheet is probably still under the seat. I am the third owner, the first 2 were related. This car was optioned with 56-56 cream yellow, black vinyl interior, soft-ray tinted glass, power tailgate window, 4 season air conditioning, remote control rear view mirror, 165 hp turbo-fire (250 bulk hp @ 4800 rpm) 350 v8, turbo hydro-matic, power steering, G78x14 belted white strp tires, full wheel covers, electric clock, am pushbutton radio, rear seat speaker, bumper guards, luggage carrier. it also included power disc brakes, wood grain body panels, dual action tailgate, concealed stowage compartment, hide-a-way wipers, front shoulder belts, carpeting, glove compartment light, lighter, wheel opening moldings. This car was bought in Baltimore on 3/30/72. It runs and drives excellently. The air conditioning still blows real cold. It is absolutely amazing! look at more of my wagons at www.einstyn.com.
