1949 FORD 'WOODIE'
1949 Ford Custom "Woodie" Beach Wagon, only 38,977 original miles on the odometer! This car is finished in a very attractive Arabian Green (looks blue) and has a beautiful offsetting tan interior. The seats have aesthetically pleasing seat covers installed but the original upholstery is underneath and in very acceptable condition. In addition, the car has its original wood paneling - both inside and out - that is both beautiful and remarkable. Overall, this car is in excellent conditionl, there are a couple of bumps and dings but nothing of any consequence - breathtaking!
This car is a throwback to the fifties and really belongs in California transporting avid surfers to and from the beach. It has a working heater, a clock that does not work and an AM radio that needs a tube or two; this could be converted to AM/FM if one wanted. There is carpeting installed where originally there were black rubber mats; the car has never had any serious rust and it has always been used as a summer car. It was used during the summer from 1949 to 1958 and still sports a 1958 Massachusetts inspection sticker. It is our understanding that it was then stored in a barn with a wooden floor, where it stayed for 40 years.
