  1. I am wondering what everyone's thoughts are on using wood appearing vinyl on a '49 Town & Country. The car had vinyl looking wood frames by the real stuff. I can go either way on restoring it. I have seen photos of these cars done either way and there are merits to either approach. First of all the curves in the door sheet metal would lead anyone who has ever worked with wood to know it isn't the real thing. But if it is wood shouldn't it all be wood?! Tin Woodie Chevy's don't do it for me. Everyone is welcome to post their thoughts. Value versus aesthetics and of course Patina are all factors. Thanks
  2. I havve recently acquired this vehicle, primarily as a woodie fan. It has been up in Idaho for about ten years, pretty much out of sight. I understand it was in Florida before that and appeared at some meets in the 1970s. Any information or insight on this car or on how to find out more is appreciated.

  4. I have a 41 Oldsmobile Woodie Wagon, which is largely original. I purchased the vehicle about eight (8) years ago from a family going through a rough spot in life. The patriarch of the family had changed the factory engine for a late 70's, early 80's Oldsmobile 455. My understanding is that the choice to change the engine, was largely due to the lack of resources at the time (lack of the internet, or knowing where to find parts). Nevertheless, I'm not sure what the present value of the vehicle actually is, as I haven't seen another 41 recently sell? Can anyone assist in the assessment of pricing, or point me in the proper direction - website, publication, or otherwise?. Excluding the engine, the vehicle is largely original - wood, interior, included. My understanding is that there are maybe three (3) to six (6) of these 41's left? At any rate, I do have the original inline six, as well as any part that was initially taken off the vehicle. Furthermore, the car does run and drive; although, it has been a while. It presently resides in climate controlled garage. Any thoughts, or questions - let me know.
  5. Not wishing to cross post; however, I just realized that there is a forum for the National Woodie Club... Nevertheless, the link to my original post is below and I copied my post to save you a click. http://forums.aaca.org/f136/1941-oldsmobile-woodie-wagon-help-pricing-369582.html I have a 41 Oldsmobile Woodie Wagon, which is largely original.

  7. In red field - RM46-47. near the arena, I'll have her out for display Friday morning and afternoon. Going for her Senior in 35B on Saturday, We'll be around from Tuesday on, if you want to come see her, feel free to contact me here. It's the first Keller ever at Hershey and the second time a Keller has been shown on the field. One of three remaining prototypes for Keller. she is quite an interesting car and a great car story. Hope I see you there!! (sorry about the pic, I just can't get this right..)Sam
  8. So there is a Keller Woodie Station wagon on ebay. It is one of the three remaining examples of the Huntsville, AL based manufacturer. If you are looking for the rarest car in the post war car world, this makes Tuckers look like toyotas in terms of availability. I have the largest Keller library in the world and am wrapping up the restoration on one of the other kellers so I would be able to offer any knowledge or photos/literature. This is the car that the limited production class was created for and has a neat history ( you can read more at Huntsville Rewound (AL/USA) Rocket City USA ) I have no connection to the sale and have nothing to gain from its' sale other than getting this car out of a storage building and out on the show field. Enjoy..
  9. WTB: 1953 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon Tail Gate Glass Wanted. Thank you for any assistance. Rob
  10. Believed to be the last unrestored 1940 Buick Woody, and one of 12 or 13 total left in existence. Buick only used Biehl Body Co. in Redding, PA for one year - 1940. After 1940, Buick used a cheaper body maker, and it is widely acknowledged that the woodwork, and therefore the cars, were no longer as intricate or attractive. This car is believed to be complete (with backseat) and includes some spares such as a new wiring loom, extra grill, bumper, bumperettes, various phenolic parts and a "period" portable radio. This particular car was purchased new by Warner Bros. Studios in Hollywood, CA - then traded at Howard Buick in 1950 and subsequently purchased by Mr. John Thomson, of Los Angeles. We believe Mr. Thomson was a professional photographer who took the famous picture of the first atomic bomb detonation at Bikini Atoll. The car was sold from his estate after Mr. Thomson's passing in 1985 (copy of the obituary may be available). More info from the previous owner (#3): "Re: 1940 Buick Estate Wagon, model '59' bearing 1956 CA lic plate "JPM575" with 1961 reg tags chassis #: 13837256 engine #: 54033740 Biehl Body Co. ID plate: body # 486 / trim # 1 / paint # 544 (original paint color - maroon, interior trim - dark red leather and wool carpeting) (body #486, out of a total of 496 for domestic sales and 5 for export) This car was sold new in the fall of 1940 by Howard Buick in Los Angeles. NOTE: Charles Howard was the west coast Buick distributor and the owner of 'Seabiscuit' In 1950 my father's friend John Thomson bought this car from Howard when it was traded in by the original owner, Warner Bros studios. He drove it until 1961, which was the last year that it was registered. In 1985 I purchased the car from Mr. Thomson's widow and at that time checked out all the mechanicals, got the engine started and drove it around the block a couple times. I then parked it in my garage where it has sat for the last 22 years awaiting a restoration project that unfortunately never came to pass... The engine and drivetrain are original and [believed to be] functional. The electrical wiring has deteriorated. A new full wire loom with correct color coded fabric wire is included. It has not yet been installed. All lamps, lenses, and trim pieces are present and intact. The car has the original front seat as well as the removable rear seat and the optional rear fender skirts. There is an extra two piece grill as well as a bumper and bumper over-rider, all rechromed and wrapped up. All the body sheet metal is solid with no rust-out as this car has always been in Los Angeles and has not been subjected to road salt or harsh winters. The wooden body is northern Ash, while the inset plywood panels are covered in mahogany veneer. With the exception of the tailgate, liftgate and adjacent overhead and vertical rear corner posts which have all suffered deterioration from weathering and dryrot, all of the rest of the body woodwork is in place and intact. All four doors open and close, but their joints are loose and fragile. I must stress that although much of the wood framing might appear to be refinishable and restorable, that wouild not be a wise course to follow. In order to do a proper restoration and ensure the strength and integrity of the body, ALL of the woodwork should be disassembled and used only as patterns for the fabrication of a new body..." ** All information contained herein is believed to be true and correct, but not guaranteed. Please supplement this information with your own research. The car is currently in running condition. It starts and idles more smoothly and quietly than our 2007 Chevy Tahoe. Truly a remarkable car, we hate to let the Buick go. Hemmings ad link: Hemmings Motor News: Buick Estate Wagon for sale Anamera link: 1940 Buick Estate Wagon Woody (Pre-War) for sale: Anamera
