This restored 1950 Ford Country Squire Woody Wagon is everything you love about classics in one vehicle. It has the iconic '50 Ford styling, classic wood sides, solid flathead V8 power, and a cool surf wagon style. So the desirability of this one goes beyond just its exceptional rarity.
This one has a very cool sense of vintage style. It is vibrant, vintage, and detailed with just the right hints of maturity to make sure everyone knows it has a history. In fact, this is just coming from 20 years of long-term care. So you'll see the right level of preservation and investment throughout that make this one even more distant. It starts with the paint. The bold yellow signals that this has moved on from its original years as being one of the most expensive Fords around, and now it's a bit more of a hot rod surf wagon. But the pinstriping and windshield sunshade signal that the idea is not to be a modern cruiser either. So it's aiming for the Frankie & Annette kind of style. That's why there are still plenty of vintage details, like the hood ornament, Custom side trim, continental kit, and iconic bullet-nose grille (with the Ford V8 done in a matching yellow.) And while the rack with surfboards and road trip stickers are fun, we all know the largest visual attention-getter is all the real lumber that's looking so clean and complete.
The interior continues the correct woody style with a nice look on the door panels, tailgate, and even supports for the headliner. The original idea of a station wagon was to ferry hotel passengers to and from the train station, and so this one still has plenty of space to carry everyone thanks to two wide rows of seats. The second row is even still set up correctly if you ever wanted to get the third row in place. And that useful feeling is at the heart of this interior. The rear seat folds flat for better cargo, and the cloth upholstery is durable yet comfortable. There are even nice additions like tinted windows, sport side mirrors, and an AM/FM/CD stereo in the glovebox (not currently working). So this still feels like the kind of cruiser everyone can pile in and take to the beach.
The engine bay continues the vintage but updated style. The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 looks distinct in the engine bay with the custom yellow block radiating nicely against the black inner walls. There are cool vintage details, like the oil bath air grabber and Edelbrock finned head covers. And you'll also spot helpful upgrades for a better cruiser, like the Coolcarbs heat shield. Best of all, we were told this motor was rebuilt only about 1k miles ago, and the way it fires up and runs so smoothly reaffirms the feeling of a quality investment. The three-speed manual transmission shifts easily, and it feels responsive around town no matter if you're carrying surfboards or a carload of passengers. This one keeps its authenticity right down to the color-matched steel wheels with two-piece wheel covers. But investments like new whitewalls make sure cruising is authentic but easy.
