This is absolutely fanflippingtastic!!! I love vintage trucks, especially old chevys. Your is the most fabolous example of one on MOCpages. The wooden details are jaw dropping. The round bonnet is gorgeus. And the van itself is just so bloody AWESOME!!! I bet that,if the Chevrolet company saw this, they'd give you a HUGE reward! :D

I love that wood paneling. Maybe not a complex method, but very effective. Looks even better in Lego than on the real thing.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments!
Quoting Vibor Cavor No wander it was sold poorly because the car was ugly. Don't get me wrong, old cars are beauty when their body consists only of metal parts but "woodies"? I don't think so! I never saw a cool looking "woody". I don't even know what was the point of doing them? Who ever thought of such an abomination?! Anyways as for your model! Beauty! I mean it still is an ugly car but you made it beautiful! Really depicted that look! This is a very cool MOC with exact details! Bravo!
Woodys were made for two reasons (both good): vehicles made in the first part of the century with wood body structures/paneling were seen as prestigious, much the same way a Lexus or Cadillac is seen today. They also used wood as an alternative to steel which was in short supply during war years. Woodys are highly sought after by car collectors and enthusiats due to their rarity and beauty.

Impressive curves, especially in the hood and fenders! Though I disagree with some of the other guys, I think these were some of the coolest-looking cars on the road back then. Which makes for an equally cool LEGO model, of course!

AW - DUDE! That's like a totally radical beach- mobile! I mean, that's down-right narley! We should hop on board, and take her down to catch some massive, like totally delicious, big ones! Nothin' like a wave perfect, man!

Wow, no love for the Fleetmaster?! I HAVE to disagree with the others about the look, I love them! The only thing missing is a couple of long-boards on the roof. Fantastic job with the lines and the little details. I especially like how you did the dashboard.~H

Oh, great work, Tim! Love that cheesy wood paneling. Although, ya know...I'm not sure I'd pay two grand for that car today! ;-)

Nice and unique model! It look's a bit wierd also at the first glance, so that may also be the reason for so bad luck at selling this wagon. But yours would definately do better!! ;)
