Classic Car Overview

History of the 1942 Ford Super Deluxe Woodie: Ford Motor Company had been in the wood-bodied station wagon business since the Model A was introduced in 1928. Not only involved in the complete production of the wooden framework, in the early 1920s Henry Ford had purchased hundreds of thousands of acres of hardwood forest in Northern Michigan, which became known as Iron Mountain. This sawmill was providing the wood necessary for building millions of Model Ts, along with the crates they were being shipped in all over the country. Ford would turn the Murray Corporation to finalize the assembly of the Ford Station Wagons, who would do so from 1928-1939. To make things more interesting. Ford actually had a company based in Louisville, KY named Mengel Body prepare the wood planks for Murray to use in the build the bodies.

Here one finds hand craftsmanship raised to the highest level of efficiency."" Unfortunately, the craftsmanship of restoring such a splendid vehicle has become a lost art today. So while just finding a surviving Woodie on the market is a challenge in itself as most have required some professional restoration along the way.
