Car description

1950 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe Wagon (Tin Woody) A meticulous. extremely detailed restoration has just been completed on this 1950 Chevrolet “Tin Woody” Wagon. in Rodeo Beige Metallic (The factory original color). This is a 47. 00 original mile survivor. It has been stored in a temperature and humidity controlled warehouse since 1977. only to be removed 18 months ago to begin the journey to it's restoration. The car looks and drives the way it did when it was delivered by the dealer. probably better than it did in 1950 when it was brand new. The engine has been completely gone through and rebuilt. Any original (born with) parts that were replaced have been saved. The original spare tire has never been on the car or hit the ground. The original jack. handle and jack base are still sitting with the spare tire as when it left the factory in 1950. Fully Documented 65 Year - 2 Owner History: This car was originally purchased as a 52nd Birthday gift for Gertrude Lawrence by her husband. Richard Aldrich. Gertrude Lawrence was the original star of The King and I. opposite Yul Brenner. when it opened on Broadway on March 29. 1951. In August of 1952. Ms. Lawrence was diagnosed with cancer and passed away on September 6. 1952. The car was then placed into storage and remained there until late 1977. when it was sold by the Estate of Richard Aldrich. The car was then purchased by Paul McDowell of Dennis. MA and used infrequently. adding only 974 miles to the odometer over 38 years. on this 47k original mile survivor. Additional Information the original owner. Gertrude Lawrence: The King and I: http://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/The_King_and_I Gertrude Lawrence: http://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Gertrude_Lawrence I will let the car speak for itself in the 100 pictures below. The pictures don’t do this magnificent automobile justice. To understand the attention to detail. you have to see this car in person to appreciate the workmanship that went into this restoration. If there are any additional pictures you would like to see. just ask. Please contact me with any questions. The car is located in Palm Beach County Florida and I’ll be happy to show it with reasonable notice.
