Woody Wagon restoration from the ground up , crazy amount of work and lots of fun have worked on six of them now this one was first – we made all the mahogany panels , and replaced all rotten Birch , restored and refinished the rest.

before photos are old will not load , photo 4 is doors before and yes the whole door is wood!
next photo is back door and trim parts during finishing ,Note roof ribs are all curved Birch.

Very well done! Is all the metal original?

My uncle, whom I admired, was a guy from the Iron Mountain area of Wisconsin. He did great stuff with knotty pine from creates of WWII. He had a woody!

Thanks for the trip!

Great work, as a mechanic I can appreciate the work and effort put into repairing such a classic. Sadly they do not make them like this anymore.
