In this working day and age, wagons are incredibly hot. Specially when they are woodys. Previously this thirty day period, I shuffled into the Kentucky Exposition Middle trying to stay away from but one more storm at the Avenue Rod Nationals. Whilst the air conditioning was nice, I was drawn to a 1936 Ford woody that was even nicer.

Cars and trucks like this are this sort of a treat. The tale goes that this unique wagon was pulled from a pecan lose in Florida and thoroughly brought back to existence. It’s primarily stock, full with a 221cid flathead, Wide-5 wheels, and all the ideal trim.

The sheetmetal is unbelievably straight it’s clear that the vast majority of the wooden has been effectively preserved. I just cannot say for sure, but I believe that the old type “Lake Cumberland Lodge” lettering is a much more the latest addition.

Just one of these journey decals would be appropriate at household on the wagon. (Supply: eBay)

By way of a minimal bit of online investigate, I learned that there have been just over 7,000 of these vehicles generated. How many continue to be is anyone’s guess. Even though I was not equipped to speak to the proprietor, I did take a second to browse the bright pink placard in the windshield. On the final line, he summed things up far better than everyone else. “Fun auto,” he wrote. We couldn’t agree extra.
