Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, announces the sale of two wagons once owned by Edsel Ford II. Both are to be sold at no reserve by the grandson of the brand’s namesake during the Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Arizona, on March 20-27.

The 1958 Edsel Bermuda wagon features recent restoration work and a transmission swap (from manual to period-correct automatic) carried out by Roush. The rear axle has new seals, bushings, and brakes, while the interior was updated with heat shielding, new carpeting, and seals to make the car more comfortable and inviting. Roush also replaced the original column-shift assembly, while keeping the stock steering column. The proper two-pedal system for automatics of that time was installed, and new control linkage was built.

Though they have, for long, been extinct in production facilities, woodie wagons are still counted among the most important cars in America’s automotive history. For several decades, woodie wagons were equivalent to the modern day’s high-end SUV. Buyers loved their spacious cabins, and the quality of artistry it took to turn a pile of wood into stylish and durable car parts.

Though genuine woodie wagons fell out of favor with manufacturers and mainstream buyers due to their increasing production cost and a lack of durability, many pre-loved examples were given a second life by classic car lovers and collectors. Some well-kept examples are even exchanging hands for hundreds of thousands, entering the history books of the most expensive cars sold at auctions. Dive in as we look at five of the greatest woodie wagons of all time, versus the five best woodie wagons sold at the recently held Scottsdale sale.

There’s a lot we don’t know about the car in the images here. It’s listed as a 1969 Ford Mustang Wagon. Since Ford never made a 1969 Ford Mustang Wagon, this was some sort of DIY project. We are fans of wagons around here and this is a very cool car.

We wonder if this was some other Ford product that someone skillfully grafted the Mustang front clip onto or if this started as a 1969 Ford Mustang that someone skillfully grafted the wagon back onto. The only thing we aren’t very keen on is the rear hatch, which looks like it came off a Pinto (which it may well have come off of.)
