Default '42-45 Monart Survivors?

Do any Monart woodie wagons still exist?

They were a conversion company in Milwaukee, WI that took '41 and '42 Ford and Mercury coupes and sedans and converted them to station wagons for the war effort.

Manfred could have run for Congress when he got out of the big house.

The web site seems a bit jammed at the moment, did find this picture though -



and this one:



Interesting and pretty good looking car - the one pictured seems to be the type built from a 2-door donor. (centre facong rear seats)

If you view google's cached image of the page linked above, all the text is readable but no pics (right now anyways)

Mart.

No problem. They're a neat overlooked bit of history.

I've got a friend who is really into Ford woodies. I think I'll email him and see if he knows of any survivors. I'll report back...

Could this be one the gentleman (Nick?) from California didn't have?

Heard back from my friend. All he could tell me is he knew someone a number of years ago who had one, but that is all he could tell me. So there is at least one... somewhere.
