The vehicle featured here is our 1928 Chevrolet Depot Hack Woody. This is a unique vehicle called a "depot hack". Today we call these taxi cabs but back during the 20''s and 30s these cabs certainly looked different. The depot hack received its name because many of these large vehicles were purchased by railroad stations that used them to take passengers to their hotel.
These were also the woody''s long before Ford began building their popular woody''s for individual use. The earliest woody''s however were the wood bodied depot hacks like the one shown here and were specifically built to carry people along with their luggage.
The woody vehicles are considered the forerunners of what America came to know as the "station wagon". Most contend that the station wagon began with the depot hacks and evolved through the 1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon. The term station wagon appears to have begun around the late 1920''s. Today''s station wagon could be called an SUV.
Our 1928 Chevrolet Woody-Suburban or Depot Hack Desert Coach is from California and has been a well maintained Woody Hack. It is equipped with a 4 cylinder 35HP Inline 4. This was the last year of the in-line 4-cylinder engine in this model and the first year for mechanical brakes. The 28 is equipped with a 3-Speed Selective manual transmission, 21 steel disc wheels and the electrical system has been converted to 12 Volt.
