1929 Ford Model A Woody Station Wagon/Depot Hack
29 was the first year for the woody station wagon body style from Ford.
This one, which is believed to wear it's original wood, is a Murray bodied car and still carries it's original brass tags. The metal hardware is all original as well.
The engine is coded as a 1931 and as such is not original to the car. The odometer reads just less than 48000, also believed to be actual miles. It is equipped with a waffle type exhaust manifold which indicates it would have had a heater set up and the taped up hole in the firewall shows that was probably the case. The owner doesn't think he has the heater set up though.
Although there is surface rust beneath, there is no rot on the car.
The lacquer paint on both the hood and fenders shows some cracking.
While I might clean things up a bit, give her a good cut and wax job, put new tires on her and clean the interior up a little more, I'd enjoy her just as she is in full original patina.
Very solid, she would be a great foundation for a full restoration if someone was so inclined.
The engine starts right up and runs and drives easily. The brakes work great for rod operated drums and there is a new front leaf spring fitted. Lights work, gauges work.
The seats are a heavy duty vinyl and are done how they would have been in the 30's.
The car has been maintained with oil changes and regular lube jobs along with replacement of needed items like the front spring.
There is a small hole in the top that does currently allow water in but that can be patched without too much difficulty.
I'd say the only thing this car needs to be road ready, overall, would be new tires, the current units are either bald or dry cracked or both...
Asking price is $18,000 or best offer.
