1948 Ford Super Deluxe Marmon-Herrington Wagon

Most closely associated with mid-century surf culture, woodie wagons are certainly some of the most iconic cars of all time. Unfortunately, while they were fine for driving to and from the beach, they weren’t great for much else. If you want all that vehicle’s style in something notably more capable, however, today is your lucky day – there’s a 4×4 conversion of a 1948 Ford Super Deluxe that’s headed to auction.

Modified by Marmon-Herrington, this 1948 year model got some major upgrades that turned an otherwise-middling commuter vehicle into an off-road-ready outdoorsman’s chariot. It features a 239 CI 59AB flathead V8 engine (originally capable of 95 horsepower) mated to a 4-speed Borg Warner manual transmission, which sends power to an all-wheel drive drivetrain. The wood sides are a combination of a maple frame with mahogany panels, matched beautifully by the wood in the cab. And the whole rig sits atop brand new Super Traxion off-road tires. Best of all, this beauty went through a comprehensive restoration, having been driven only 500 miles since. In such pristine condition, this rare converted overlander is expected to sell for $250,000 to $325,000.

Purchase: $250,000+
