HISTORY OF MY 1941 PLYMOUTH WOODY
While helping a co-worker work on his Model A in 1975, I mentioned
that I would like to find an old car for myself. He told me that he knew
where there was an old station wagon. Station wagon??? Who would want
an old station wagon? I got the directions but was in no hurry to go look at
it.
A few months later I happened to be in Lee, MA so I stopped to look at
the vehicle. The owner, Mrs. Houston, told me it had been in her barn since
1947 and to go ahead out to the barn. There was a big mound of hay with a
corner of the roof sticking out. I brushed off the hay and discovered it was a
Woody We agreed on a price and Woody was mine!
I quickly drove home to get my trailer to bring Woody home. After I
got home, I realized the two rear seats were missing so I made another trip
to Mrs. Houston’s barn, dug in the hay and found them.
Once I got her started, I had to take her down the road for a test drive and
of course blew all four of the original Gulf brand tires! Just a minor set
back.
In 1978, Mrs. Houston had passed away and her niece was cleaning out
her desk and came across the original bill of sale. She called and asked me
if I was wanted it and boy did I. It’s framed and hanging on the dining
room wall. Cost new was $1040.00 with a $650.00 trade in allowance for
her old DeSoto. Purchased from Cons Motors of Lee, MA.
Work and family obligations kept me from working on Woodie so she
stayed in my barn until we retired and moved to Texas in 2002.
Woodie is a P12 Special Deluxe wagon and her mileage was 32,346
miles. Her color is West Point Gold. The engine is original as well as the
generator, starter, voltage regulator, coil, rod and main bearings, piston
rings, gas tank, shock absorbers, wheel bearings, rear end, transmission and
all the wood. It took me a year to get her looking like she did in 1941. I
took off wood panels which are birch and mahogany to sand and varnish
them. There are hundreds of screws. The old canvas top needed to be
replaced. It was held in place by hundreds of little blue tacks. My wife held
the new canvas in place while I hammered in all those little tacks. That was
a job! New top is seamless, just like the original. Seats needed to be
reupholstered as well but were done as the originals. Car has been repainted
in the original color, West Point Gold.
We take Woodie on outings around town and local parades but don’t
drive her on the highway very often. People tend to gawk and not pay
attention to where they are driving and we sure do not want to end up with a
load of toothpicks!
