This custom 1940 Oldsmobile Woody Wagon encapsulates everything that is great about a classic Woody, but has been comprehensively updated for performance, reliability and comfort. This Oldsmobile was single-family-owned from the time it was purchased new until it was sold to the previous owner and restorer in 2016. Because the car had been so lovingly cared for, it required almost no bodywork. The car was almost completely straight to begin with, and the panels all remain largely original. The same goes for the wood, which, although it has been completely taken apart, refinished and reassembled, remains 90% original to what was first placed on the car in 1940. While the car was taken apart, it was resprayed in a 3-stage PPG blue/gray hue, and all the chromework and stainless-steel trim was refinished. On the inside, everything was redone to original factory specifications, with upgrades such as a Vintage Air system and a stereo installed in the glove box. Under the hood is a 350ci Chevrolet Vortec V8 engine with some modest upgrades to provide plenty of passing power and a relaxed cruise on the highway. Backing up this engine is a Turbo 350 automatic transmission with a column shifter that sends power back to the Ford 8-inch rear end. The suspension has been upgraded with 2-way adjustable coilovers at all four corners and a Mustang II front end with independent suspension, plus upgraded power disc brakes. This Woody has won awards at multiple shows, including a Best of Show trophy at Woodies on the Lake in Lake Arrowhead, CA, in June 2018. A 6-page article written in 2018 by Woodie Times magazine features the details of the build even further. A copy is included with the sale, along with two sets of keys.
