STK 2551 1937 Dodge Westchester Suburban Woodie Wagon
This is a very rare 1937 Dodge Westchester 'Woodie' Suburban. There were reportedly less than 500 of these wagons produced in 1937 and the fact that our Dodge has virtually all of the original body wood and a factory third seat makes this Westchester Suburban a classic. The current North Carolina owner has been the caretaker of this Dodge for the last 45 years. It has been partially restored and is a very original, very complete example of a 'Woodie'. The 4-door 'Woodie' body is amazing. Wood panels have been carefully preserved or refinished and a new exterior top liner was installed with material from the vintage restoration firm LaBaron Bonney Company. Window glass is original with a little patina (fogging/bubbles) and new seals. Panel fit is excellent and the metal body components were refinished in 2012 with Nason Super Black Single Stage restoration paint. The interior was also refreshed in 2012. Tan vinyl upholstery is in very good condition as are the dashboard, steering wheel and all working gauges. Our Westchester is also equipped with the rare heater option – 1937 'Climate Control'. Original natural wood interior door panels have been refinished, the wooden 'headliner' is stunning and the three bench seats can be moved into various configurations. Our owner is all but certain that the entire drivetrain is original. The model T-38 218ci flathead-six, rated at 87bhp, was completely rebuilt in 1976 and sounds amazing. It is backed by a 3-speed 'Selective Sliding' manual gearbox with column shift. New transmission input shaft bearings and rear seals have been installed. The solid chassis was cleaned and refinished in Satin Black. It carries 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes (rebuilt 2006), a restored gas tank, new shocks and stock rear 'hypoid' differential with new seals. The original 6-volt DC-generator electrical system is fully functional. Firestone 6.50x16 bias-ply whitewall tires are mounted on the factory steel wheels with center hubcaps. The overall original condition and level of detail on this car make it a very desirable Dodge Suburban. It is more than ready for your next hometown parade or cruise-in and will certainly claim 'Best Vintage SUV' honors. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
