Default Re: Woodies in India

Woodies have always enchanted me, for the first one that I ever saw one was in Galveston eon years ago and I had thought to myself, may be these yankees are mad and have build car out of wood. But later realised that they were indeed a breed of cars.
The only reason that I see for their poor survival rate in India could be that they look like HEARSE cars.
I am getting a devilish idea of getting a real rotten 1956-57 Fiat and build a woodie out of it.

Regards-Sonu

A Morris (or Hindustan?) traveller in a 1973 movie- DHAMKEE. Hope it survives.

In the second pic- What is the car behind the Morris?

Is it French by any chance- Renault, Simca- or even a Peugeot?

There used to be a late '70s woody parked at Napean sea Road, Mumbai which looked something like the pic below. Does anyone have an idea where that car is.

However as per my knowledge the last Plymouth Woody was in 1950 with the P18 Series. Please see this link

I would rather say it is BMY registered, not BMT. BMT would be a commercial series, with a white plate.
