Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this exquisitely restored 1929
Ford Model A Station Wagon. Affectionately known as the Woody (or
Woodie, depending on your preference), 1929 was the first year of
the factory-built wood station wagon and it ushered in an era of
wood-paneled cars that lasted through the 1950s (followed by
another several decades of vinyl wood-grain applique to replicate
the wood look).
Finished to a furniture-grade standard, the wood body is excellent
and all steel components (frame, engine cowl and fenders) are
straight and solid. The fenders and running boards are finished in
black, while the cowl is painted in period-correct Manillla Brown
(a dark tan shade). Seats are trimmed in an attractive dark
grey/brown material; the right front seat folds and flips forward
to allow easier access to the rear seat. All of the factory gauges
and controls are working as they should; a bud vase has been added
to the pillar behind the driver's seat. It's a charming and
attractive example that never fails to turn heads.
Mechanically, this Model A was restored to the same high standard,
with a rebuilt engine, transmission, new clutch and fully
overhauled suspension, steering, and brake components. Drivetrain
is stock. No, it doesn't drive like a modern car, but it starts,
runs and drives better than most Model As. Fewer than 1,200 miles
since the restoration. This woody wagon would be a welcome addition
to any collection.
