Australian Ford Prefect

Ford Prefect A53A are Australian bodied 10hp Ford Prefect sedans, vans and ute's built between 1946 and 1948. Perhaps twenty were available as 'scuttles', without body aft of the windscreen. Once a scuttle was purchased from Ford you could build what ever body you wanted on the back. The original purchaser of this 1948 scuttle was a Brisbane boat builder who built the shooting brake body on it. It is unlikely that any other A53A woodies exist.

1948 Fiat 500b Belvedere

The wooden mouse - 1948 Fiat 500 Modelo B Topolino, the 'Belvedere Giardiniera'. 500cc of cuteness. But then, for a change of pace, can you imagine an early 1960's AA/Fuel Altered dragster built from one of these?

Lanci Aurelia by Viotti

1948 Lancia Aprilia with a wooden body by Pietro Frua. Most likely it was the only one built.
