British Woodies From The 1920s To The 1950s

Peck’s book is the first on the subject of British ‘woodies’ – wooden shooting brakes, station wagon and estate cars – and it goes into detail on all the main chassis builders and coachbuilders (including some of the more obscure companies).

In their heyday, they were built on virtually every make of car and light commercial chassis and could be seen on every road in Britain. Sadly, the British climate isn’t too kind to wood and today they are a real rarity.
