eBay Car of the Week: 1949 Ford Woody Wagon
Want a Woody? Well if you want this one, it is going to set you back at least $79,500. Bidding lasts until February 26... About this Car We love us some Woody action. Well, wood-paneled wagons, that is. In the 1940s and 50s, the Woody wagon became synonymous with the surfing scene, and the originals have been going for top money. This 1949 Ford Woody Wagon Resto-Mod is the best of old and new, and right now on eBay, its fetching top dollar. For those unfamiliar, a Resto-Mod (or Resto-Rod) is a classic car that has not only been restored, but modified with late model parts. This Resto-Mod is no different. Under the hood is a 5.0-liter V8 from a Mustang, complete with aluminum heads. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Brakes are often an issue with classics, but this yellow little number has a quartet of disc brakes.
Want all that classic swag, with the modern amenities like power windows and air conditioning? It's going to probably set you back more than $80K. As of Tuesday night, the bid was $79,500. Bidding ends the afternoon of February 26. We'd say it's worth the coin.
