    This was the real deal in the late 70's early 80's. Car came out of Santa Cruz.

    I'm currently bringing it back to life HERE

    I love this wagon, can anyone tell me if the wood was a factory option or is it a kit, the reason I ask is, I have never seen one with wood on it before and I like it! I did a some searches, but didn't find any info or kits any help/info would be appreciated.

    Murch.

    Murch. To answer your question at that time Plymouth made 2 lines of cars. The standard line which included a typical 4 door woodie station wagon. And a cheaper line on a shorter wheelbase consisting of a 3 window coupe, a fastback 2 door sedan and a 2 door steel wagon. This was the first all steel station wagon by any car maker and it had a big success, as it was the cheapest wagon on the market.

    The car in the pictures seems to be one of the cheaper, all steel 2 door models that someone has dressed up with wood trim and wood grain paint.

    Whether it is a one off or a kit I don`t know but it sure looks sweet doesn`t it.

    Yeah, I really like it, adds a little flavor to an already cool wagon. Thanks for the info, I'm still in the learning stage, so all info I can absorb is great.

    Murch..Thanks for the compliments on the wagon, first, Plymouth made two all steel wagons a Suburban and a Savoy the Savoy had stainless trim under the side windows, around the windsheild and some interior stuff while the subur was a lower cost version. The wood on my car was done by The Wooden Carr co. in Signal Hill Ca. by Doug Carr. I put this wagon on a shorten 1998 S-10 with a 300 hp sbc crate motor/ 350 trans. just saw rusty otoole's comment about the wood grain, there is No woodgrian it's all wood......

    Thank you! Nothing looks as lame as a surfboard strapped BACKWARDS onto the roof of a vehicle, 500 miles or more away from the beach. I wish some others would follow your lead. Nice wagon! :)
    ..And by BACkWARDS, I mean nose first!
