1948 Ford Super Deluxe Marmon-Herrington Wagon
The Woodie station wagon originated from the early practice of manufacturing the passenger compartment portion of a vehicle in hardwood, it is most closely associated with mid-century surf culture. This pristine example featured here is an original Ford Super Deluxe V8 Marmon-Herrington Wagon, an exceptionally rare period conversion to four-wheel drive. Headed to auction, this 1948 year model was modified by Marmon-Herrington and got some major upgrades. It is powered by a 239 CI 59A-B flathead V-8 engine mated to a 4-speed Borg Warner manual transmission, which sends power to an all-wheel drive drivetrain. And, best of all, the car has only covered approximately 500 miles since its recent restoration, meaning it’s as good as new if not better.
