Default 30 ford wagon body

Hi - I understand that Pleasantville is no longer making wagon bodies for the 30-31 wagon. Anyone else make a quality body? Or anyone have a good used one? Thanks.

That's too bad, and I can't help, but I have a complete 1930 running chassis from someone's hot rod project, and it sure would be nice if it had a station wagon or depot hack body on it.

The wood side of the company was for sale at one time, and someone will likely purchase it at some point. Then the hurdle is waiting to purchase the metal side of the company. Both sides have served the hobby well.

Pleasantville is out of business but the sister company is selling the metal components. There are two fellows in Michigan that are now doing the Woodie body for the Model A as Henry built it. They have over 40 years of experience. That is where I am going to order mine for my 1930 150B Woodie later this year or next year.

Send him an email at:mikenickelswoodies@gmail.com. He can give you his phone number and you can talk.

The metal side of Pleasantville is not doing any production and only is selling off what they have on hand if anything is left. We have been in touch with them and were able to get a few bits that we needed for the 30 we are working on.

Hi Redmodelt:

Thank you for posting the info about the metal. I need all of it. I hope someone purchases both companies and start to reproduce the metal parts!

The law of diminishing returns............. the body prices have gone up, but the resale appears to be dropping. A fun project, but certainly not a great investment.

Hi 38Woodie:

These two master carpenters are now in business together selling Model A 150B Woodie Bodies: (they both have a lot of experience building wood bodies.

Mike Brown and Neil Brown

I talked to Neil Brown a few months ago and they had 6 bodies in production. ($7,200 as advertised in ad)

His Phone Number is: 231-620-7802
His email: phaseiiiwood@yahoo.com

Mike Nickels is his partner:

His phone number 231-342-9173

I plan to order a body as soon as I sell a Volvo 1800 that I am selling. I have the matching number chassis with title ready.

Hi 38woodie:

Must be glitches in their setup. I could see and fill out my contact info but no place on page to send it to them and did not see their phone number. One place indicated a sign in but could not fine a place to sigh up.

I know this for a 1930 but do they do a body for a 1929? This some good information.
