Built from scratch by Hercules Motor Car Company. Building Woodies is their expertise, because that's all they build! Visit their site to learn more. They advertise "body kits starting at $32,500". We are offering a complete, running finished car for only $43,998. This was one of the first cars they built, there were 2 almost identical. The other one sold for $80,000. There are only 9,400 miles since built. That says it can certainly be driven and enjoyed.
EXTERIOR: The fit of the wood body is very impressive. Very tight gaps, the doors close solid and dont rattle. They used piano hinge from top to bottom on the doors. Looks like oak boards with birch inserts. In back it has a two part tailgate door. The glass is all tinted. The door windows can be slid out the top. The cowl, hood, running boards and aprons are metal, fenders are glass. The hood is 3 pieces, can be used with the sides removed. The paint overall shows really well. Its glossy and even. You may find some minor nicks or touch ups. The roof is padded and upholstered in a durable sail fast vinyl, mint condition. Some nice vintage features include the big Ford headlights, the original style stainless steel bumpers, step plates and door handles. It gets the hot rod look from the stance and staggered size tires on aluminum wheels.
