The vintage Woodie was introduced back in the 30's and were often
conversions of normal vehicles by 3rd party coachbuilding firms and
even local carpenters. These vehicles utilized wood construction of
their passenger compartment for a really neat unique look.
Woodgrain accents are still available today but US produced Woodies
ended in 1953 with the Buick Super Estate Wagon. The Morris Minor
over in Europe continued until 1971 and is the last true mass
produced Woodie out there. This very clean 1951 Ford takes it all
to another level combining its unique Woodie appearance with very
well done customizations to make it truly 1 of a kind. The non
Woodie portions of the body are all steel and painted in a very
nice Slate Gray paint. The wood is all custom made White Birch
buried under many coats of varnish. The body has been chopped 2
inches and completely shaved of any door handles or rain gutters.
It now has a 1 piece door, quarter and curved windshield,
pied/pancaked hood, and flipped and tightened bumpers. The turn
signals have been incorporated into the running lights and in back
it has custom 1939 Ford taillights. It also has a very cool
recessed and incorporated spare on the rear tail gate. Literally
nothing was untouched or overlooked on this car. It has no problem
taking home awards and was the 2005 Goodguys custom of the year and
the NSRA custom of the year. It has also been in its fair share of
magazines and was featured in the 2005 Hot Rod magazine. The car
has a great stance and rolls around on custom Intro wheels (18x7
front, 20x9 rear) with low profile Pirelli tires.
Just by the look of the exterior you can bet this thing is no
longer powered by its original Flathead. It now has a 2002 LS1
engine out of a Camaro and performs extremely well. It sits in a
very cleanly designed engine compartment with custom firewall and
custom inner fenders. The motor looks just as great as it runs and
delivers a great sound through dual exhaust. The motor is paired
with a 4L60E transmission that shifts smoothly. The car sits on a
stock frame that has been boxed and is nicely painted to match the
body. It rides on adjustable coil over suspension with a Scott's
hot rod front clip and Scotts hot rod four bar kit. In back is a
Ford 8 inch rear with drum brakes. The brakes are power assist and
it has Wilwood disks up front. Other nice features include the
painted to match 16 gallon plastic tank and the rack & pinion
The interior of the car is finished out in a nice light tan leather
and is one of the cleanest done interiors out there. It features a
nice split bench seat with bucket seat style backs. The dash has
been kept extremely clean and is painted to match the upholstery.
To achieve that clean look the AC/Heat controls and even wiper
controls were all relocated to the glove box. The dash now features
only the all in one gauge and the clock. The tilt column is painted
to match and topped off with a matching vintage Ford steering
wheel. Behind the bench seat is where the Pioneer AM/FM/CD/Ipod
stereo was relocated and it sounds great through 6 Henden speakers
with 2 amps.
This custom Woodie is extremely clean and needs nothing but a new
You couldn't come close to building it for only $94,500.00!
Will consider interesting trades!
