The dash has been professionally refinished in the correct maple woodgrain finish. It also has the correct chrome strip between dash and front window garnish moldings, often missing on these cars.

We have thoroughly enjoyed this car and it turns heads wherever we go and it’s perfect for tailgating! We’ve driven it to Stowe, VT for the 40th anniversary of the National Woodie Club gathering and the Connecticut shoreline to deliver a beautiful bride and her father to her wedding with no problems. With its Columbia 2 speed rear end, this elegant Woodie will easily cruise at 65-70 mph.
