Ford Deluxe Station Wagon Woodie
When you think of a classic American station wagon, you probably imagine a classic Ford Woody with surfboards on top and signature wood panels on the side. And the 1937 Ford Deluxe Station Wagon equipped with the famous Flathead V8 engine is exactly that. Ford started the Woody revolution with cool-looking wooden bodies. And soon all the other Detroit-based brands followed their lead.
Those models were the first proper station wagons Ford aimed at regular buyers. They produced them on a standard chassis with standard drivetrains. Those models were a bit more expensive than sedans or convertibles. But they offered more space and usability, which made them popular with surfers and hot rodders in the â60s.
