The woody was the most expensive and the least popular Chevy for 1947. They built a total of 4,912 but you never see many Chevy woodies like you see the Ford woodies. This one is all stock looking on the outside and inside. Behind the scene its updated. Running a Chevy 283 V-8 Engine. 350 turbo automatic transmission. Rack and pinion power steering. Mustang front clip. Front disc brakes. This is a real solid Chevy. It was built new in Oakland, California. A little more history - The man I bought it from lived in San Diego and bought the car there. He moved to Seattle about 1994 and had the late model running gear installed here. He then moved to Victoria BC in 2004. The wood was in very bad condition so he spent $88,000 to have the wood replaced. I have the receipts. What you have to remember is there was no wood kit for the 47 Chevy so it was all done by hand. The only wood reused was the headliner wood strips. The wood is impeccable. He just moved back to Seattle and did not have room so I bought the woody. Again the interior is all stock and in very good condition. I did see minor spots on the seats. Has gauges under the dash. Temp, oil, gen. and fuel. Am/FM CD radio in the glove box with 4 speakers and 10 CD changer. I have driven it a lot if the weather is good. I have taken it to different shows and Friday nite get-togethers. Its in my garage at home. The ride is stiff but it feels good. I installed new Coker wide white radials, they look better. I really like the stock steering wheel an plan to have it resorted. Its one fun wagon to own. Cond. # 2-.
