1949 Ford Woodie Frame Off Restoration Fatman

1949 Ford Woodie Frame Off Resto, Fatman, Mustang II

This is a 1949 Ford Woodie that was completely restored, frame off in 2006. It has a rebuilt Chevy 350 V-8 motor with a Turbo 350 tranny and 9 inch Ford rear end. It has a Fatman front frame kit with Mustang II independent suspension and power rack and pinion steering. New wire harness, air conditioning (not hooked up). Tilt steering and electric multi position bucket seats. The only rust was in the front floor board panels. They were cut out and new floor panels were welded in. Additional used wood was purchased from a Woodie Times magazine ad and some new wood was bought from Rick Mack Enterprises. Most of the used wood was sanded and bleached, so it has a nice patina vintage look. This wood is not perfect.The rebuilt motor runs smooth with about 500 miles on it since the restoration in 2006. The turbo transmission shifts smooth and strong. The disc front brakes and drum rear brakes stop on a dime. The chrome and paint are like new, no dents and look beautiful along with the mag wheels. The tires are like new but they are from 2006. The hand crank windows are smooth and work effortlessly. All new seals throughout the car. This is a beautiful driver Woodie that sails down the highway with a quiet ride. It is ready to drive anywhere today. There are a few items still needed like the rear window hold open rods, which I have and they are included. I also have the rear metal spare tire cover complete assembly and the middle back seat which needs to be upholstered. These items are included. I have a three ring binder with several photos of the Woodie - before, during and after the restoration. This Woodie was also on the cover of Woodie Times magazines, Nov 2006, with a nice detailed write up of the restoration. Both the three ring binder and the magazine will be included.

Serious buyers, please look at all of the photos and call with any questions 360-670-5496 PST. I can help with the loading on a transport truck for shipping.
Please be advised this Ford Woodie is for sale locally and the auction can end without warning if it has not received any bids.
