This 1935 Ford Woody is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. 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. They were typically manufactured as third-party conversions of regular vehicles. Some were built by large, reputable coach building firms and others by local carpenters and craftsmen for individual customers. They could be austere vehicles, with side curtains in lieu of roll-up windows (the 1932 Ford) and sold in limited numbers (e.g., Ford sold 1654 woodie wagons). Eventually, bodies constructed entirely in steel supplanted wood construction for reasons of strength, cost and durability
This particular Ford Woody is a true barn find that was regularly maintained, and is believed to only have two wood pillars replaced. Under the hood, you will find the original Ford Flat Head V-8. It looks to be in great shape, and may have been restored at one time, judging by the condition. The steel hood and fenders still have the original paint. It shows it age, but is still in very good condition. The interior seats are finished in a red material and are original. The current owner ordered new side window curtains. If you are looking for a true collectible, then look no farther. They are currently located in the back seat. The wood panels and framework, to this rare piece of automotive history, are in great shape.
