American Woodys (Crestline Series)

  • Barcode: 0760308667

They're not just for surfers anymore. In fact, among today's collectors, restorers and enthusiasts, wood-paneled wagons are among the most coveted automotive specimens. This collection of more than 500 archival and contemporary photographs documents the evolution of wood-paneled or "woody" station wagons, from the automobiles actually constructed or accented with lovingly finished wood in the early half of the century to the dawning and continuous unchecked proliferation of simulated wood grain from the 1960s through the 1990s. Introductory text for each decade along with exhaustive captions for each photograph, combine to tell the fascinating stories behind these wood-bodied vehicles. In addition to the "Big Three" American carmakers, bygone manufacturers like DeSoto, Hudson, Nash and Packard are also represented.
