Are you ready to feel nostalgic and enjoy the timeless invention of a wooden-sided station wagon It’s time for Woodie Wagon Day celebrations!

Some might ask, “What’s the Woodie Wagon?” Most likely they’ve seen them before, but they didn’t know what it was.

Woodie Wagons were the original station wagon cars built in America in the late 1920s through the late 1940s. These cars had their doors and sides meticulously paneled in wood. This lush wood paneling was also used for the back trunk hatch or hatch.

Many auto manufacturers, including Ford, Mercury and General Motors, adopted the design. Some models featured birch, mahogany, and ash.

The wagons made of wood were heavier than those made from all-steel. They weighed in at around 200 to 300 pounds. The Woodie Wagon was practical, but beautiful and elegant.

The National Woodie Club is a fun way to meet other Woodie Wagon enthusiasts and keep informed about these wonderful cars. This club was founded by those who love, appreciate, and own the Woodie Wagon’s rich history and cultural contributions, American and foreign.

Keep up to date with Woodie Wagons’ events at both the local and national levels. A membership includes a subscription for the Woodie Times magazine and the chance to take part in local chapters. There are also free classified ads on this website.
