First things first: We have all the right documentation on this absolutely stunning custom show car that won the “Radical Wagon” award during the 2010 Grand National Roadster Show in Ponoma, California. Do an internet search for 1950 Tin Woody and you'll find the car easily.


When you approach this car we're confident you'll smile and take a closer look. The first thing that comes to mind is that it's an unmistakable Woody. The deep rich brown metallic makes the honey colored wood grain really pop out at you. Take a closer look at that detail in the hand painted wood grain. It took a true artist to incorporate the finger and miter joints. The body lines flow nicely due in part of the handleless doors and the roof being chopped. And thanks to a Ridetech air suspension this resto-mod hugs the road at multiple levels. Rounding out the corners are 10 spoke chromed Budnik wheels. It's an outstanding compliment to the profile.


Under the hood is where you'll find a huge power plant by Hilborn. It's a 502 ci fuel injected monster capable of pumping out over 500 horses. But the detail work under here is unbelievable. The firewall and fender wells sparkle and gleam. The paint work includes two-toned brown and pinstriping! Entrenched between all that you'll find all kinds of chrome from the alternator to the the AC unit. But check out the valve covers. Are they not pure awesomeness? The word Chevrolet was created with shadow work that makes it look as if the word is floating. We love it!


Underneath the car follows the same craftsmanship as the rest of the car. Painted in the same scheme as under the hood, you'll enjoy everything you see. From the Wilwood brakes to the Magnaflow exhaust, to the custom line work, it's all just outstanding. Even the pumpkin ball on the differential is two-toned with pin striping.


Finally, inside the cabin is where you'll want to be. The design is simply stated and soft to the touch. A gauge cluster rests above the steering column while the speedometer lives on the floor just ahead of the shifter. Air ride, radio, and window controls are nestled inside the armrest. Perfectly matching wood grain inserts are found in the door panels, rear floor, and inserted in the headliner. Grab the Budnik steering wheel, twist the key and enjoy the ride. Surfs up and waiting!
