Eye Candy! "Beautiful" 1928 Model A Station wagon.
"Going to the Lake Woody". Runs nice, new rubber, Clean title. Includes the side curtains, running board and roof carrier and a 1919 Old Town Canvas Canoe(documented). I'll throw in the cooler and outboard as well. You won't see another one like this!
No contact info.low price. May be scam but interesting photo's 1920s car,canoe,outboard and cooler.
"You won't see another one like this!"
True. Because, this is not an authentic Model A wagon. Homemade body, wrong seats, etc. So, it is what it is.
Hi Ward. Do you recognize this beauty? This photo was taken last night at a car show in New Caney, Texas.
Mr. Sherwood restored this 1929 Ford station Wagon and won the MAFCA Award of Excellence and the MARC Henry Ford and Award of Excellence. The awards are analogous to the MTFCI's Stynoski. Ward's work is simply beautiful.
P.S. The REA signs are just hanging on the door. I would not dare mar your beautiful woodwork. She is still super clean. I am trying to be a good caretaker!

Michael.Very nice car. My point for My original post it too was a pretty car with period outboard and canoe. I am not well versed enough to pick cars apart. I will leave that to others.
The phrase. "You wont see another one like this"
is true of most any 100 year old car none of them were restored exactly the same way, paint, materials,prep,replacement parts.Even original cars of the same year and model are not the same because of how they spent the last 100 years. So if You want to see a original Model T. A picture of one rolling out the doors at the Ford Piquette Avenue plant is about as good as it gets!
Hi Jim. No criticism from me. I just saw Ward's post and wanted to let him know that I was taking good care of the 1929 he restored. When Ward speaks of Model A station wagon's, he knows what he is talking about it terms of originality. Mike
It has been sold to "A Museum"
Darel. Thanks for the up date. A museum is a fitting place for it to reside.and even thought it is not original as Ward pointed out.It will still make a nice camping exhibit of the Woody and outdoor equipment. and perhaps spark new interest in preserving old cars and period camping equipment.
While the statement that there are no 1928 Station Wagons because they would have been 1929's is true, there were 5 built in December of 1928 of which 3 are said to survive.
One of those original 5 Model A wagons built in Dec. 1928 is for sale on the MAFCA website. I sold it about 8 years ago to the current owner.
Michael, I love that 29 woody wagon. Still looks beautiful, and that makes me happy.
Hopefully, I have not been misunderstood. I have no problem the vehicle advertised; my critique was specific to the description of it as being a Model A station wagon. If someone unfamiliar with these cars is looking to buy a real station wagon, this would not be the correct choice. As a cool home-built woody type vehicle, nothing wrong with that.
I believe I read that all five of the 1928 built station wagons have been found, but I cannot remember where I stashed that information.
I got the count from the book "The Legendary Model A Ford", 2nd Edition
In my opinion, both these cars are beautiful in their own way. I am going out on a limb here, but iím guessing there is not a toothpick worth of original wood in the one pictured, so how original is it? Glass houses/ stones, you get the idea. Original wood is good !
Here in Minnesota there a erynice original 1929 SW. it was found in about 1958 and is very original, including the body.
My family in my Dad's 'as found' 29 Woodie around 1959.
