Today it's National Woody Wagon Day in the USA. A woodie wagon is a car body style, especially a station wagon, where the rear bodywork is constructed of wood framework with infill panels of wood or painted metal. As a variant of body-on-frame construction, woodies originated from the early 1930s practice of manufacturing the passenger compartment portion of a vehicle in hardwood.
The woodie wagon was popular in the United States and were typically manufactured as third-party conversions of regular vehicles. Eventually, bodies constructed entirely in steel supplanted wood construction - for reasons of strength, cost and durability.The Presurfer
