Snapshot of the Day: GQ GGA


Not enough pics of this wagon to do a full feature (yet… I’ll update if need be) and it’s a bit of a throwback, but it’s one of the first wagons to do the sedan front AND REAR wide fender swap…

The sedan rear fender swap is neither cheap nor easy and requires major custom bodywork. This guy got sedan front fenders to also fit with a wagon front bumper (also major custom bodywork). There is another bolt on method for sedan front fenders on a wagon, but this isn’t it.

via the owner: “The car did go under lots of surgery and let me tell ya, it sure aint easy as it looks, sure is not “bolt on here” and “bolt on there” type of deal. Like i said, lots of time and money have been invested in this car, I have no major sponsorship and the car was worked on by me. The fender job and paint believe it or not cost just a little under 8k” – gqzboy

    My buddy at Kustom Imports did the body work on that car. The car did look amazing when it was done.
