1953 Chevrolet Townsman Wagon Townsman Tin Woody

1953 CHEVY TOWNSMAN "TIN WOODY" WAGON - 4 DR

In 1953, Chevrolet produced 3 station wagons, a 210 Townsman, 210 Handyman and a 150 Handyman. The Chevy Townsman wagon, affectionately referred to as the "Tin Woody" was Chevrolet's most expensive, limited production, top-of-the-line trim packaged wagon. What made the Chevrolet Townsmanwagon unique is that the front ends resembled the iconic "Bel Air" as did the side trim. However, the sides and rear panel was Chevy's last attempt at duplicating a "True Wood" car.

This beautiful car has the timeless appearance and feelof the original looking Townsman, but has been restored with modern high performance, engine, transmission, driveline, suspension and slightly altered appearance. Anicely well done, " Restomodded car.

This car has gone through its transition over the last 10 years, and has only been completed recently, with the final addition of its new Diamond whitewalls being the topper in its evolution.

At this time the car has apprx 200 miles or less on the engine, suspension, driveline, paint, and interior work,

Please feel free to contact me to discuss in detail the car, and I hope the pictures show enough of the beauty and agelessness of this " Cool" wagon. Below I have tried to hit the bullet points of the cars options and information. I look forward to future discussions. I have more and more pictures showing interior, ex, misc..... can only due 24

NOTE: Car color(s) are 1953 Chevy Sea Green (body)and Chevy Emerald Green Metallic (top) The car was repainted (2) times in the last few years, the top was redone due to a careless admirer who put 2 "elbow" indents on top, so we had the entire top repainted, the main body after all engine work, front end work etc we had the body redone as well, all since 2014 (* Car was stored in climate controlled warehouseafter all that work was completed until late 2017 )

* I recently saw on rear bumper after visit to tire shop a small scratch on rear bumper's corner in rear? It would take a great eye to notice but I did, and I will deduct from winning bidder $ 500.00 to have this fixed.
