From what I remember, Campbell also built some woodie conversions, including on Ford F series cowl and chassis vehicles. I think that Stu has a scan of the production ad and an actual picture of one with people standing in front of it.
There was also a picture posted on FTE recently of a 48-52 Ford Panel that was converted into a woodie by its current owner. I also saw a b&w picture of it in Old Cars Weekly maybe last summer. It was from a show in SoCal.
1951 Ford Panel
1952 Ford Panel
1937 Chrysler Airflow C17
...and way too many Bonus Built/Economy Built parts... -----------------------------------------------------------
This is a 1946/48 Chrysler Town and Country sedan, there was a 2 door ragtop also offered....which are prolly worth more than any woodie except super rare 1946 Mercury Sportman's..
It's a '48. He typically takes about 4 months to restore or hot rod a frame up project. This one took two years. He just finished a '50 F1 for the zillionth time. I think he may keep this one as they are getting harder to find and he's gettin on in years.
Since I didn't get to see any flatties at this morning's show, I decided to rifle through my flathead photos from this series. I thought I'd update this post with a few of the better looking ones, so here they are:
A few hot rod flathead v8's:
A nice stock 239 (or 255?):
An original model A motor:
This is the flathead 6 that was in the green International:
A nice stock flat 6 in a Chrysler ragtop:
And a COOL looking Plymouth straight six all dolled up with (what looks like) vintage speed parts. This was probably my favorite engine there.
