Default Newest Acquisition --- 1934 Station Wagon

I am rather excited for my recent purchase. I have always dreamed of owning a 1933-34 Station Wagon, and that dream came true this week. I haven't been this excited about a purchase since I was lucky enough to buy my 1932 Phaeton from one of my dear friends.
The previous owner was Jerry Grayson, whom as many will know was a well respected V-8'er and true asset to the V-8 Club and the Hobby. It will likely sit for a while until funds are available to finish it. I hope to eventually get it up to a Dearborn Award quality car, as Jerry would have wished. Jerry's family was very gracious in allowing me to purchase it, and they plan to be there the first time it is shown, even if it's ten years down the road. Until that point it will sit in my garage with it's new friends. If only they could learn to reproduce at night!

As a interesting tid-bit, it is Body #2999 of the 3004 1934 Wagons produced.

You should be excited, that was a wonderful buy. 1933-1934's have always been my
favorite.

Few restoration projects will give you greater satisfaction (and relief) than the completion of a wood-bodied wagon. Have fun!

My dad restored a '28 Station Wagon when I was around ten. I went all over the place in the back of it. I've loved them ever since. All kinds of little
brackets and goodies that are unique to the woody. Nice sheet metal on that woody.
If it going to be 10-year's before you start on this project you should plant some birch and maple trees now! You might wan to add onto the garage too. There is always going to be one more car you can't live with out.
