"The 1950 Ford Woodie Wagon is one of the most desirable of the
"Shoe Box" wagons. This 1950 underwent a full frame off restoration
some time ago and shows like new! The metallic Merlot maroon paint
shows as new and covers a near perfect rust free metal body. The
exterior maple and mahogany wood was new years ago and sports many
coats of fresh marine spar varnish. The chrome and stainless shine
like new. The stock 239cc flathead was rebuilt and runs smoothly
and powerfully. The 3-speed overdrive transmission shifts smoothly
and takes the woodie down the road at freeway speeds. The options
include radio, heater, clock and overdrive transmission. The stock
style 3 seat interior is very nice and sports full carpeting. The
radial tires run smooth as silk. This 1950 Ford Woodie Wagon drives
like new and will turn heads wherever the new owner may venture.
