A Man and His Father’s Car

Every now and then, we have guests stay with us who have a special story that I would like to share. This week, we had some guests from New Mexico stay with us who were picking up a car that was having some work done on it in Kansas City.

That car was the gentleman’s father’s 1950 Ford Woody Wagon. Our guest has spent the last six years having it restored.

The man lived in Kansas when he inherited the automobile and started having work done on it. The final stage of the restoration was having the interior reupholstered in KC.

The gentleman and his wife retired to New Mexico, where his family lived when his father bought the car new.

It is truly a beauty. The couple should have great road trips in the Woody!

  1. Somehow, my father’s Fury III from the 1970’s does not carry the same romantic appeal. Put a rudder and propeller on it and we could have gone ocean cruising though. 🙂
