This Woody has a great Chicago History as one of the famous Chicago Landmarks. No other bar in Chicago can match the storied past. unique decor or atmosphere of the John Barleycorn Memorial Pub. "Barleycorn's" is still known to locals as incredibly conducive for conversation and libations. Barleycorn's was also speakeasy during prohibition with a Chinese Laundry as a front and John Dillinger's favorite local pub. VIN A3828498Red and Black with natural wood finish and black interior. Engine: Four Cylinder. In-line. 200. 5 cu. in. giving 40bhp at 2. 00rpm; Gearbox: Three-speed manual; suspension: solid axle with leaf springs; brakes; four wheel drum. Left hand drive. Compared with its Model T predecessor. the Model A had a much shoter production life. amounting to about five years. Even in those times. four and a half millions examples were sold. A record that stands today. The rugged 3. 3 litre side-valve engine provided 40bhp at 2. 00rpm. With its three-speed sliding type gearbox. it was capable of tackling any road conditions due to its immense low down torque and thus provided the ideal chassis for differing body styles. Among the options were a variety of models ranging from a two-door roadster to a coupe. to a four-door. to a pickup truck and a wooden station wagon. as on offer here today. With a few exceptions. wood has been almost exclusively for Ford Automobile body frameworks and interior trim until the wood bodied station wagon came along as a new model in April 1929. Unlike the rest of the Detroit establishments. Ford was one of the few to actually produce its own wood bodies. Nearly all the rest were built by independent contractors such as Ypsilanti Furniture. J. T. Cantrell and Hercules. Ford station wagon bodies were built from wood harvested at the company's Iron Mountain Timber Mills in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Much of the wood used to build Ford station wagons went into construction of the headliner. which conssted of long. white ash slats; the inside door panels were mahogany and the outside panels a combination of mahogany and birch. The stylish four-door. wood-bodied station wagon was the second mose expensive model in the Ford line. priced at $625 in 1931. A total of 2. 48 were produced in the Model A's final year. While 1931 marked the end of the Model A era. the "woody" - a nickname given the cars many years later - remained in the ford line until civilian automobile production was officially halted on Febuary 2. 1942 and the last American automobile. a Ford Sedan. rolled off the assembly line. The Ford Wood-bodied station wagon was one of the first models back into production after the war.
