This 1940 Buick Woody Is The Real Deal

The body of this Woody is nothing short of amazing. Silky burgundy paint contrasts perfectly with the real wood paneling from the front doors back. Strategic brightwork on the grille, bumpers, headlight bezels, etc. add to the sophisticated feel of this vehicle. The whitewall tires do much to complete the authentic look of the Buick, transporting onlookers to a time when cars were rolling works of art.

A luxurious interior seats six people and still has a spacious rear cargo area. The original dash, gauges, and steering wheel preserve the genuine feel of this wagon. Few vehicles from the past or present make you feel quite as classy as you do when riding in this Buick Woody.

Pop the hood and you’ll find an eight cylinder 248ci 107-horsepower engine that does a great job of handling this relatively heavy Buick. A super clean chassis ensures this ride will keep serving you well for the long run. Even the wood paneling is all in excellent condition, ready for someone to provide loving care.

Only 495 of these Buick Woody wagons were built, and this one has been preserved so immaculately you’ll be hard pressed to find another like it. While the wood paneling is surely an eye-catcher, the one-piece stamped front fenders were considered a technological tour de force for Buick, adding to the historical significance of this ride. As time marches on, this svelte luxury vehicle will surely only continue to appreciate in value.
