The 1948 Ford Super Deluxe Woody Wagon was quite expensive when new because it was a craftsman-built car. This example carries on that tradition with a six-figure restoration that makes sure this one looks beautiful and feels authentic. So it impresses for far more than just showing off the joints of the wood body. This is detail-oriented, right down to the leather on the seats and original AM radio that's been converted to AM/FM/AUX. Plus, one of the coolest parts of this build is the way it was built to go the extra mile while staying quite authentic. The classic flathead V8 has Eddie Meyer cylinder heads, an Eddie Meyer intake to hold the Stromberg dual carbs, and Fenton headers feeding the dual exhaust. And the Columbia rear end is a two-speed unit built to double your gears for both good low-end torque and easy highway cruising. It all proves that the longer you look at this woody wagon, the more you realize how much of a singular creation it is.

After all, it takes a lot of time, effort, and investment to get the wood body looking this amazing. So it doesn't need all the other details to be impressive. But they still took the time to make sure all the V8 upgrades you see and the rear end most never see are upgraded in only the right period-correct ways. So this woody is not just about showing off for others and likely winning some nice awards. It was built to be a time capsule that lets you experience the absolute best of its era. It's the kind of car that would likely take decades to even try and replicate, and that's why we're so impressed with the build. You can tell there's heart and soul in this woody to make it this authentic, and that's why it's worth every penny. Call today!!!
