Oh my, if you have been looking for that perfect Woodie Wagon with the absolute best in Workmanship, Engineering, Fit, Finish, Craftsmanship and Drivability. You better STOP and take a good look at this stoic beauty! Simply put, stunning attention to the details combined with superior "Show Quality" results...

A no expense spared restoration that lends itself to the following statements. Arguably one of the finest and most tastefully restored 47 Ford Woodies on the market today... I know those are big words but this is truly a no excuses "Show Quality" specimen that can be driven anywhere in the country or cross country with complete comfort and confidence while matching up with the best of the best.

From the subtle grains of light hardwoods, to the ribbon striped mahogany panels, into the glistening wood grained dash, sliding onto tightly wrapped glove leather and finally resting your feet on German square weave carpet, you will feel like you just sat down in a comfy chair at a luxurious lodge. The only thing different is that you can drive this ambience to the next setting and the only crackle you will hear is the snap of a good ol flathead V8 exhaust...

In closing, this is the Ford Woodie Station Wagon that you just get into, crank up the Beach Boys on your iPod, and drive to any car show and take home some more wood! No Disappointments, Period!

Engine: The engine is a built 292 flathead built by Ford V-8 expert Dave Tatom of Mt. Vernon, Washington, connected to a Ford C4 automatic transmission. As you can see from the photos the engine shows exquisite attention to detail and operates equally smooth. It is all new, high tech and reliable as can be. It is detailed down to the nuts and bolts for show quality in every detail.

Chassis: The chassis has been fully boxed. Four wheel disc Wilwood brakes and of course all stainless brake lines and fuel lines. The front suspension is independent Mustang II with power steering and the rear end is the reliable 9" Ford. The highest compliment about the suspension and engineering on this car is that it drives as good as it looks.

Body & Paint: The car is an original California car. It was a dream original to begin its journey to its current condition. The dark green special paint compliments to magnificent wood perfectly!

Wood: The wood was done by Woodie Guru Ron Heiden in Encinitas, California. After a one-year wait to get into his shop, the two-year project from there was beyond perfection and well worth the wait. Ron is widely recognized in the woodie community as the very best and one who does not cut corners. His work speaks for itself.

Interior: The interior is perfect. All three original seats and the highest quality glove leather obtainable over aircraft foam padded seats. Zero wrinkles and all French stitching to perfection. Square weave carpet, Mercedes Hartz cloth top, chocolate interior paint highlight the workmanship by Westminster Auto Upholstery in Tustin, California.

Small Details: The dash is magnificent in it's presentation and presence with every single detail. Fully wood grained and all instruments are original "digitized" for perfection in engineering. The radio is a new Old Stock original that has been connected to and controls both the XM radio and iPod, which are hidden in the glove box. All speakers and XM antenna are hidden.
