The definition of a Woodie is: A car body style with rear bodywork constructed of wood framework with infill wood panels, or wood framework that augments the car’s structure. Woodies were popular in the United States and were produced as variants of sedans and convertibles as well as station wagons, from basic to luxury and were often used as multi-passenger commuter vehicles in vacation destinations.

This wild I948 Ford Woody classic made a big splash at the 2013 “Wave Crest Woodie Car Show” at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, the largest classic car show for woodies in the USA. This fabulous looking Woodie underwent a full body off build. The sheet metal, brightwork trim and hard parts are mostly original to the car. They were, reworked, repainted, refinished and reassembled. The car is painted in candy raspberry accented with Birdseye maple wood treatment. All the interior wood trim, upholstery and dash moldings are reconditioned or new. No expense was spared. Power comes from a Ford NASCAR style 427 Side oiler backed with a C6 automatic transmission. It rides on a set of period correct polished 5 spoke Radar wheels and fat low profile rubber. The smooth ride comes from a full “Heidts” sub frame with rack in pinion steering and power front disc brakes. This Woodie runs and drives like a modern car. As they say, it’s all in the details. That’s what makes this one of a kind spectacular Resto Mod Woodie stand out above the rest!
