The woody was the most expensive and the least popular Chevy for
1947. They built a total of 4,912 but you hardly see any Chevy
woodies like you see the Ford woodies. This one is all stock
looking on the outside and inside. Behind the scene it's updated.
Just installed a new crate 350 Chevy engine with lots of chrome and
polish. 350 turbo automatic transmission. Rack and pinion power
steering. Mustang front clip. Front disc brakes drums on rear with
a dual master cylinder. This is a real solid Chevy. It was built
new in Oakland, California. A little more history - The man I
bought it from lived in San Diego and bought the car there. He
moved to Seattle about 1994 and had the late model running gear
installed here. He then moved to Victoria BC in 2004. The wood was
in very bad condition so he spent $88,000 to have the wood
replaced. I have the receipts. What you have to remember is there
was no wood kit for the '47 Chevy, so it was all done by hand. The
only wood reused was the headliner wood strips. The wood is
impeccable. He moved back to Seattle and did not have room so I
bought the woody. Again the interior is all stock and in very good
condition. I did see minor spots on the seats. Has gauges under the
dash. Temp, oil, gen. and fuel. Am/FM CD radio in the glove box
with 4 speakers and 10 CD changer. I have driven it a lot when the
weather is good. I have taken it to different shows and Friday nite
get-togethers. The ride is stiff but it feels good. I installed new
Coker wide-white radials, they look better. I really like the stock
steering wheel and plan to have it resorted. It's one fun wagon to
own. 1947 CHEVROLET FLEETMASTER WOODY WAGON Cond. # 2-.
