Default Welcome Home!

Just got her home, 47 Woodie that was available actually in my area. The car you want is usually across the country...drives really great, overall a very nice original wagon...

Will get more pics out this weekend. Needs a few tweaks, it is a driver. The bolt on driver side hood hinge is a modern bolt that is way too long and most likely cross threaded. Needs new bolts on the passenger rear fender to farthest back wood section, and only wood I will work on is replacing the inner door panels. They are currently some type of 1/8” pressboard and want to get them back to close to original looking. But she cruises on the highway just fine.

Yes this is the one from EFV8 site.

Ibelieve originally the seat covers were leather, my car has vinyl, good news is it has all three bench seats. Often the rear one is missing, taken out to fit more stuff, and then lost or forgotten. It has been raining all weekend so unable to get it out for maiden voyage and photos yet.
