My latest on the internet besides looking up mustang info, is looking up 67 Fairlane Wagon 500 XL info. I have been a fan of station wagons for about a year now, and am interested in purchasing one soon. Wondering if you guys could let me know of danger zones to look for when looking at a wagon. Anything specific things i should look at/for?

Thanks in advance guys.

Rust in two critical areas.
1) The rear sub frame where the spring shackle bolts up.
2) The front leaf spring bucket area.

The biggest places to look on any old car for rust is the torque boxes and the cowl. All else can usually be repaired/replaced somewhat easily.

also, you may want to check the floorpan in the cargo area, thats about the only place my '62 Falcon Wagon had any rust.

Under the rear floor there might be a storage area. If the rear window doesen't seal or was left down it can fill with water and be swiss cheesed.

biggest problem on my 65 country squire other than rusted rear sub-frmae at the shackle point was the power steering. it was a nightmare to fix & i would have saved money by either deleting it altogether or going rack & pinion.After over $800.00 repair it lasted about a month before trouble started.
