Despite the Great Depression, the auto industry was marked by quick evolution in the 1930s. Many auto companies picked-up on the Station Wagon body style. This marked the beginning of the great Woody style.

In June of 1930 Ford made some minor modifications to their Model A Wagon creating the 150-B version. These included Duel taillights and elimination of the exterior sun visor.

Don't have one (rare). Molded in butterscotch, build as a stock or street rod woody. Opening doors, tailgate, hood.

MODEL
COMMENT
Pros: Comes with parts to make it either a wagon or a panel van. Nice opening tailgate. Chevy small block with 6 carbs, special Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels and wide Goodyear tires.
Cons: Wood paneling is modeled in not allowing for easy real-wood substitution.
Summary: I don't actually own this kit but it would seem that, along with AMT's 29 version, this wagon is better geared toward Hot-Roding. Designed by Darryl Starbird.

From the 60's ABC Horror Soap Opera Dark Shadows. MPC took some liberties with a '31 Chevy Panel Truck.

COMMENT
I'm not a big fan of the customs like this, but it fit the hearse bill and is a nice collectable. It comes with a lot of extra parts including the coffin-shaped trailer.

Essentially the exact same as the 1930 wagon, except for some of the external metal parts, previously black, were painted Manila Brown.
MODEL
COMMENT
The first release in 1965 release could be built as either a 1930 or 1931 Type 150-B Station Wagon, or Type 55-B Tudor sedan.
97 release has 170 pieces, Skill Level 3, and even opening doors I would guess it is a pretty nice kit.

This is a custom only model. If you are looking to build a stock 32 wagon, this is not the kit.

COMMENT
The Posies Special Interest Vehicles group has been building custom cars since 1964. This the Thom Taylor custom on a late 30s Woody.
MODEL
COMMENT
Pros: Pre-painted. Easy to assemble.
Cons: Not much detail. Paint is not the same color as original.
Summary: Although barely a wagon, the full-sized rod is pretty cool.

Another fine example of a hot-rod only model. Basically a Sedan with some wood trim. ProShop is prepainted.

#2240 could be built stock or Street Rod. Opening Hood and rear door. Could be used with one of the many Ford woodies to create a Chevy Wagon.
