In 1929, Ford put a wood box on a model A frame and called it a Woody Wagon. The legend began. Thirty years later, the Beach Boys, while surfing the USA, told us they ”got a 30 Ford Wagon and we call it a Woodie”. And the legend continued….
Here is my Woodie. Certainly not to scale, just a nice desk top replica. Picture 1, has two inserts. The first a 29 original woodie and the other a modified 29 or 30 surf woodie wagon. My inspiration.
I started with a Toys of Joys Plan, and made a few modifications. The wheels are purchased locally and have also been modified. Wood used was Maple..Cherry..Walnut, and a bit of Bass (rad housing & bumper) and Cedar (seats & surf boards). The finish is spray lacquer. This replica toy took about 35 enjoyable hours to build, and the enjoyment will last a life time.
