We bet you think this full custom 1949 Ford Woody Wagon has that big cargo area because it’s perfect for your surfboard, right?
Well once you go over the big block V8, custom A/C interior, slick paint, and all that lumber, you’ll realize that big back area is so you can fit all the trophies.
Ford’s first post-war design already has a ton of distinction. So it makes for the perfect place to start a custom build. It’s the best of everything with the dual-bullet nose of the ’51 front end, frenched headlights, flush taillights, frenched antenna, and expertly shaved trim so there’s not even drip rails to get in the way of the smooth appearance. It makes for the ideal body to lay down a modern dark blue with the kind of metallic depth that looks like you’re staring into the dusk sky. The big chrome bummers and grille have a brushed finish to catch extra daylight, and the polished Cragar SS wheels are staggered 16/17 front/rear for extra aggression in the stance. So all this makes for an amazing custom, but we really know why you fell in love/lust with this custom street machine. It’s that crisp and bright wood custom body panels that has been applied with a craftsman’s touch. This has the ideal amount of finish to give the right gloss against the blue paint, but still, you never lose the feeling of true natural lumber.
Inside, are more wood elements, but what you really can’t take your eyes off of are all the extras that make this custom so comfy. Everyone gets a bucket seat, and they are finished in a cool cream with inserts to coordinate with the exterior blue. Everyone also gets to enjoy great upgrades, like a full-length center console, AM/FM/CD/XM stereo w/Bluetooth, power windows, and ice cold R134a air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved for the driver. Your seat power adjusts to your ideal position, and the wood and chrome banjo-style steering wheel is on a polished tilt column. The dash is finished in a cool darker wood trim to stand out from the rest of the lumber, and the upgraded digital gauges have a cool blue glow.
The engine bay is filled with big block power. So while there was a huge investment in an award-worthy shine, you’ll also really love the substance of this 427 cubic-inch V8. More than just a big motor, it has been upgraded with a massive Demon 950 four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. Under that color-matched shroud is an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this big block package running cool. The undercarriage has a clean color-matched presentation where you’ll see great upgrades like the tubular A-arm independent front suspension and power four-wheel disc brakes. Add in rack & pinion power steering and BF Goodrich gForce tires, and this is the is the classic woody with some modern moves.
