    A collection of Woodies, makes Leno's collection look small

    ''OLD WOODIES''



    A Phenomenal Collection of "Old Woodies"!!!


    It is, indeed, a wonderful collection. Nick Phillips owns all of them. They are to be sold at a special auction in August at Pebble Beach. Nick is selling out to focus more on his ranches and horses. He is a BMW dealer in Los Angeles and has been actively working on this collection for nearly 12 years. Can you imagine the $$$ value of these old dears, plus insurance. Yikes !! I thought you might enjoy seeing an incredible woodie collection.


    It is located just south of Downtown Los Angeles.

    Been posted here a few times previously; Fords only. Also has several in the process of restoration. I think I read that he's going to sell them off now?

    Great Collection....
    I think he sold them off about 2 years ago.
    I saw somewthing about them on TV, IIRC in an Episode of Chasing Classic Cars on the HD Network.
    The series star bought one at auction for a client.

    A large number of them were sold at Pebble Beach a year ago. By the way, his name is Nick Alexander and he owns a large BMW dealership.

    They were the Wagonmasters....(to reuse an old Ford ad slogan).

    They were the wagonmasters




    Well in 1948 Crosley sold more wagons than any other manufacturer with 23.489 units sold

    The 1948 Station Wagon was the most popular model Crosley built with 23,489 made. Crosley was the top builder of Station Wagons in the world in 1948. They were the first completely steel bodied wagon made, beating Plymouth (who normally gets credit) by a year. The Jeep wagon body was earlier but most historians considered that a truck or carry all, you decide.

    Saw a '40's movie the other night called "Leave Her to Heaven." In some Southwest scenes they are driving an '46-'48 Ford woody with what looks like an exhaust running up the right rear corner to almost the top of the body. Was that for highwater driving, or was it for some sort of gasoline heater?
