THe wagon in the first post is a Binz, very ugly roof design. The one posted by Squiggle Dog was made by IMA in Belgium. I have two IMA Universal's. One of mine is a 67 W111 230S Universal with 4 headlights. I got it in Virginia back in 1990 or 91 for $3500 and DROVE it home to Georgia. I drove it regularly until 96. Now it is just sitting unfortunately outside rusting more. I have a 99% rust free donor sedan for that "some day" project. The other one is a 65? W110 230 Universal (2 headlights) right hand drive rust bucket parts car from Arizona. Hey Squiggle Dog, do you realize how extremely RARE the split bench seat in your IMA is? I have heard of them but have only seen one other from a car on eBay. My 67 is one of only 336 made by IMA in 67 and I have documentation to prove that. Other things I have read say they made 341 that year. Not sure but the document came on IMA letterhead straight from Belgium, so who knows for sure. I would say that less than 5% percent of them had the split bench seat. The one I saw on eBay some years ago also had a third seat, super duper rare. That car was only $3500 also and I wanted it so bad I could taste it, but could scrape together the money. Man, this make me want to get rolling on my restoration....some day.

You cannot change your future without disturbing your present.
It looks a whole lot more like it does today than it did yesterday?
