1931 Ford Panel Delivery1931 Ford Panel Delivery

1931 Ford 'Natural Wood Special Delivery' Model A  Designed for merchants serving top-end customers. The sales price was $695 and was considered too expensive for the times. It was the height of the Great Depression and one could buy the full metal delivery van for a tad over $400. Just 680 were produced from 1928 to 1932. The Ford Model A Traveler camper was derived from this model.

1934 English Ford model Y pickup

This rare pickup is a 1934 English Ford Model-Y.  It was originally created for the Earl of Suffolk, as a gift to his gamekeeper.  The styling is in keeping with English Shooting Brakes, where the doors were often metal. The little woodie still has the original drive-train, and few modifications.

1936 Chevrolet with Hercules-Campbell body

1936 Chevrolet Master ½ ton truck with a Hercules-Campbell body. This three-owner woodie has been in the same hands for the last 35 years. Astute observers will note that the panels are not the original birch. They were replaced with douglas fir plywood around 1950 - a not uncommon occurance.

Coutesy of the owner, Morris Hancock
