  1. Yes it was... The first woodie was the 1934 Plymouth. They shipped the chassis to the U.S. Body & Forging Company plant at Tell City, Indiana. and installed a station wagon body on the Deluxe PE chassis. wood body was constructed of cottonwood panels. Only 35 were built and unfortunately, none survive today. The price was $820 FOB and the only color offered was black. The same configuration was used in 1935 and 1936. http://plymouthwoodys.com/history.php

  3. Which of these 1949 Chev's is correct? The one with real wood, or the one with painted woodgrain?

  6. The steel bodies were much cheaper to make and required a lot less maintainance by their owners. (Plymouth made both styles in 49/50, and steel wagons outsold wood by 10-1). People still liked the look of the wood, so "tin woodys" were made for them. Rob is right. Yours looks like a Handyman. You can see the difference in the three styles here. 1954 Classic Chevrolet - Station Wagons
  7. Hi BossMareBetty: Another member has a 54 chev woody and was asking for information a couple of weeks ago. The thread is here... http://forums.aaca.org/f231/wood-imatation-340028.html Chevrolet Townsman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Townsman name was first used in 1953 on the 210 series four-door station wagon. For 1954, the name was shifted to the luxury Bel Air series station wagon, which featured Di-Noc woodgrain paneling. In both years. Heres what the interior and dash looks like. This is a 53, but I think they are the same
  8. Have rarely seen another woodie in Abbotsford. I'm usually the only one in the local car shows. Would like to know who owns the one your talking about. Heres another odd ball one. A woodie dragster. Dont know the year, but the sign says racing gas is 50 cents a gallon...
