1940's Chevy Station Wagons were Woodies. Pre-war 1940 to 1942 were basically the same as 1939. There were no 1943 to 1945 Chevy Wagons made. New 1946 to 1948 post-war models were updated versions and in 1949 they were completely redesigned.

Mario, do you know why they were or are called "STATION WAGONS?" Even though they move???

Okay the Jeopardy theme is now playing in your head, you have 30 seconds. RIP Alex Trebec.

What is your answer Mario and how much did you risk?

Yes they were originally used by hotels to transport people to and from railroad stations. You see a great example of that in the classic movie White Christmas with Bing Crosby. The wagon came from the covered wagon that held several people and supplies.

ding ding ding ....we have a winner of our trivia question, congratulations Mario...

Yes I watch White Christmas several times a year and see the Woody Wagon bringing the guests to the Pine Tree Lodge.

As they say on Family Feud: Good answer, good answer.

OK now a question for you.....what year and make was the woody in the White Christmas movie. Hint: not a Chevy.

You got me on this one Mario so I did what every red blooded American would do.......I googled it. That doesn't make my answer correct.....

The answer I found IS: 1950 Plymouth Special DeLuxe wagon.

Hey you got the right answer anyway. There were several nice shots of the 50 Plymouth woody and now you'll always remember that next time you see the movie White Christmas. Mario

The 1941 Chevy Deluxe has always been my favorite 1940's vintage automobile but as a woody wagon, well that is a whole other world of vintage car magic. I would take any woody wagon here but especially that sweet 41. Mario, once again thank you for sharing all this vintage car magic. Cheers.

Yes I love the care and maintenance needed to keep the Woodies in tact. I see many at car shows and can really appreciate them. Many were lost due to wood rot and also termites! It's a lost art trying to restore the wood on these wagons. The wood decals of the 60's, 70's and 80's were not the same and to me an insult of the original Woodies.
