When Packard introduced their newly designed models for the 1948 model year, they featured a design called 'Flow-through' fenders. This was the company's first new model in the postwar era, and they were called the Standard Eight.
Also in 1948, Packard introduced their wagon, called the Standard Eight Station Sedan. It predated Ford's similarly styled version by a full year. Packard's Station Sedan featured a folding rear seat, a rolled roof, and raked C and D-pillars. The styling had been courtesy of Al Prance.
The 'Woodie Wagons' were built atop a four-door, six-passenger sedan and sent to Briggs Manufacturing for completion. Briggs Manufacturing converted the sedan into a full station wagon and used ash and maple for the wood components. In 1948, the station wagons sold for $3,424. By 1950, that figure had increased to $3,449. Between those years, 1948 to 1950, there were a total of 3,900 woodies bodied by the Briggs Manufacturing Company.
This example is painted in its original Packard Ivory Color and features a completely restored wood work. It was given a frame-up cosmetic restoration.
This Model 3201 Woodie Wagon is powered by a 288 cubic-inch L-head eight-cylinder engine which produces 135 horsepower. There is a column shift manual gearbox and four-wheel drum brakes. The car rides on a wheelbase that measures 120 inches.
