THE MOTROCAR OFFERED

The 1934 Ford Station Wagon, with its more powerful 85 horsepower engine, now thoroughly developed and refined after three years in production and over a million built, is one of the most desirable. Its design, with long hood over the engine located behind the front wheels' centerline behind the sloped V-shaped grill with vertical chrome grille bars, would be drastically changed in subsequent years. Its four-passenger, four-door Station Wagon body has plenty of room for family, friends, picnic baskets and even the family dog.

The station wagon has always been highly attractive to collectors. It combines the attraction of the automobile with the undeniable pull of beautifully grained and finished wood in the body framing and panels. The long winters of Michigan's Iron Mountain region produced slow-growing trees with dense rings and frequent flashes of brilliant color and unusual grain. Every Ford Woodie Wagon was therefore unique and the workers at Iron Mountain took special pride in the way they selected the wood, joined the intricately-shaped pieces and finished it for maximum color, effect and longevity.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This delightful 1934 Station Wagon has been in the same family's care since the 1970s, and prior to that, it is believed to have been in the original owner's possession. Having been well maintained and cared for over its life, it has a wonderfully real and authentic appearance. It was resprayed in the 1970s, and some upholstery was accurately redone many years ago. It is free of any modern reproduction replacement parts. Having been stored well and out of the elements all these years, the original woodwork has held up nicely and has a rich glow restored cars usually lack. "Wouldn't change a thing" is perhaps the best way to describe its condition – a wonderfully even and great looking car that is ready to enjoy.

Only very rarely do 1934 Ford Deluxe Station Wagons become available; when they do, they are usually trailer queens that are restored to beyond perfection and unusable for anything but shows. To add insult to injury, they are generally prohibitively expensive. This example, on the other hand, is in highly original condition, a classic Ford Woodie wagon in a condition that is difficult to repeat.
