Vehicle Description

In 1933 the Model B Ford produced 75 bhp with a 221 cubic inch Flathead V8 engine. The Flathead motor was mated to a three-speed manual transmission, solid front axle and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf spring, four-wheel mechanical brakes with a 112" wheelbase.

This 1933 Ford Model 40 Station Wagon was part of the Nick Alexander Woodie Collection. Origins of this Woodie go back to the early 70's when it was acquired by Bob Slack, a well know Ford collector who was famous for acquiring well maintained unrestored 1932-1934 Fords. When Bob Slacks collection was auctioned in 1999 it was then acquired by Nick Alexander. "Given its original paint, wood and upholstery, the decision to restore this car was quite difficult and Nick took almost two years before finally deciding to commence restoration."

According to documentation the wood is all original with only modest effort to return it to near showroom condition which would explain the excellent door alignment over all this time. During the restoration new authentic brown paint was provided for the hood and cowl area while the fenders were finished in gloss black. The seats are upholstered in black-brown artificial leather with coordinating correct brown rubber mats front and rear.

The roof is covered in artificial brown leather and canvas side curtains are provided for the side and rear openings. The bright work has a brilliant shine which is offset by the black spoked wheels that are wrapped in Firestone black wall tires.

The Nick Alexander Collection was known for exceptional vehicles and this 1933 Woodie is no exception. This Woodie was the recipient of the coveted Dearborn Award in 2003 scoring 990 points after being driven to the event. Shortly after it was a participate in the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance.

The odometer of this beautiful vehicle is showing less than 4064 miles and has only been driven approximately 1464 miles since 2009.
