Introduced on March 31,1932, the V-8 Ford had become a full-blown success by 1940 when this wooden-bodied Station Wagon was built.

1940 was the second year in which Ford used four-wheel hydraulic brakes and the first in which a steering-column shift lever appeared. These cars are usually referred to as “Woodies.”
