While most of the woodie wagons that gathered here in Encinitas, California for the Wavecrest Woodie Homecoming were Fords and Chrysler makes, there was a sprinkling of many rare woodie wagons made by other auto manufacturers of the 1930’s through 1950’s. Here are some you may have never seen before.
Chevrolet production woodies were few and far between here at the Wavecrest Woodie Show. These production wood bodied Chevy’s are very rare.
CHRYSLER, DODGE AND PLYMOUTH WOODIES
Mopar models supplied a rich history of wood bodied vehicles. After World War II woodies became very popular again among suburban car buyers. They were used as depot hacks, school buses and people movers by resorts and hotels throughout the country.
CLASSIC MERCURY WOODIE WAGONS
There were more Mercury woodies at the show than I expected to see. Some of them I’d never seen before.
