1934 Ford "Roy Rogers" One-Ton Woodie Truck
Lot No. E641
Auctioned on Saturday, September 4, 2010
This vehicle may be the only wood-bodied station wagon built for 1934 on the Ford one-ton truck chassis. It is reported to have been the first tour car used by Leonard Sly, who later changed his name to Roy Rogers, and his western band. It doubled as their stage as well, with its fabric top and side curtains off and the “chuck wagon” style tailgate lowered. A venerable 239 “flathead” V8 provide power, with a four-speed transmission and a Columbia two-speed rear axle.
