the single wiper motor and the instrument panel give it away

Alex where is this one going to fit?  Stripping it in the drive and overhaul one small piece at a time?  Last time I was at your house, I could barely walk through the garage, let alone even think of working on anything.  If I not mistaken, it was so crowded I had to go outside to change my mind! ;D
Good find none the less.
