The same person has owned this 1940 Ford Woody Wagon for over 30 years. The car was subject to a full body-off restoration and has all of its original Birds Eye Mapel hardwood structure and all-new Finland Birch panel inserts. All panels were coated with Epitane Spar Varnish with five coats on all panels.
The vinyl roof is the correct LeBaron Bonney roof material and has what the seller says are very rare original rain gutters. The right and left mirrors are hinge-mounted, and the grille assembly is original, but a spare is included. The car rolls on vintage steel wheels with Deluxe trim and radial tires.
While the car looks very original on the outside and interior, it’s not original underneath having been extensively upgraded; the car uses a 1965 Corvette 327 cubic-inch V8 engine that makes 340 horsepower. It matches up to a fresh 200R4 automatic overdrive transmission and a Corvette rear end. The chassis and frame are original but have been strengthened.
The front uses independent Mustang II IFS with a full independent Corevett IRS in the rear. The 1940 Ford Woody Wagon is fitted with coil-over rear shocks, power rack, and pinion steering, four-wheel disc brakes, a stainless steel fuel tank, and rust-free original floor pans. Inside the 1940 Ford woody Wagon is leather seating, German square weave carpet, and restored dash, color, and wood.
To make it a more comfortable cruiser, it has AC and heat along with a stock radio conversion to AM/FM with line-in and four speakers. The 1940 Ford Woody Wagon is in eBay with the seller asking $99,500 for the ride. A Woody looks much better to our eyes than a conventional steel-bodied car like this 1940 Ford.
