940 Ford Woodie - Restoration

Except for the wood parts, the body is just about finished.

Wiring and insulatioin. 940 Ford Woodie - Restoration

Once we had the body completed and wired, the metal part of the body that is, it was time to send the whole thing out to have the wood done. For that, we chose Messano Woodworks in San Pedro California. There are three types of wood used in this woodie and all are the types originally used. The framing is Maple which is gives us that spectacular wood grain, the paneling is Birch, and the roof slats are Basswood. As you can see, the guys at Messano's know their wood.
