The Model: Henry Ford must have sensed the need for a new model on his new Model A Ford. Since the birth of the Model T, outside companies had been building wood­bodied Depot Hacks. Knowing he could build a superior product on his own chassis, Ford utilized his wood­working teams at their Iron Mountain, Michigan facility and started to produce the industry’s first factory built station wagon. They were pretty basic, four doors, a tailgate, seating for six plus room for baggage or parcels. There were no windows in the doors, only side curtains that could be rolled up during nice weather. These first station wagons were not fancy and many considered them purely as commercial vehicles rather a family passenger car. In that first season just over 4,500 were produced and once again Ford created a new market niche to become the “wagon master”

The Car: This early station wagon has been restored and is ready to be enjoyed. Finished in Rose Beige for the hood and cowl with the typical gloss black fenders and matching wire­spoke wheels, this is a splendid example of a historic and sought­after “woody”. The hand­crafted body has been brought back to life with any repairs or replacements being down only where absolutely needed. The seats are done in durable leatherette just as the originals, and the instrument cluster operated like new. Don’t look for any windows to roll­up, those wouldn’t come along until the mid­1930’s, but there is a full set of roll­down side curtains which provided a modicum of comfort on inclement days. Under the hood, the dependable “A” four­banger stands ready to roll. Restored several years back it has been a part of a collection where its running condition and appearance have been constantly maintained.
