They are 1958 and 1960 only, correct? No 1959 2 door?

They're pretty rare. I've seen (heard of 4 of them so far. One guy came and looked at my 4 dr wagon and told me he had one(never heard from him again) I seen one cruisin the HWY near Penticton bout 6 yrs ago and at the same time saw one in the wreckers in Olvier,BC. Also, A friend of mine just did a resto job on one in Red Deer, haven't seen it, only in pics and it will be awesome when completed.
They were a Canadian only issue as well, I believe, I don't think they were available in the US.

You are right, no US 2 door wagon.

I wonder what the reason is behind skipping 59?

I'm not sure if this one was a 2 door or not (my memory is failing me at the moment).  The front door length looks like it might be a 2-door (?).

I photographed this in Nova Scotia about 15 years ago.  It looked like it had been sitting for at least 20 years at that time and was probably a rust bucket when it was parked (abandoned?).  The car and the shack were removed about 10 years ago to make way for a Volkswagen dealership.

   What parts are you needing?  I have a 60 Laurentian 4 door that may become a parts car, soon. Also have a lead on another 4 door that I may be able to pick up.

i need a hood, rockers, lower quarters, floors, a carb for the six cylinder. Thats just to get the project started. The car is fairly rough, so there will likely be quite a few more parts added to the list in a hurry once i get into it. What would you want for the whole car sixywagaon?????? Is the windshield good as well. mines cracked.

I'll have to see if my partners gonna need anything(its stored in his yard) then I'll let you know what I got.   Its a long way to ship if you wanted the whole car.
