Looks like "Chevrolet" on the side of the hood.

Got to be within that range. FYI, woody's based on light-duty trucks were custom made, and some of them were built by a company based in Huntington, L.I., N.Y.

Yes , this is a Chevrolet 1948-1951 with wood station wagon body by J.T. Cantrell and Company,Huntington Station , Long Island. N.Y. As the period woodies , the frame was ash with panels of mahogany veneer and the roof was made of waterproof canvas stretched over ash ribs. After wwII Cantrell produced about 24 woodies a day , mainly on commercial Dodge and Chevrolet chassis but also for Studebaker.The Cantrell bodies were reputed for their strenght and durability.

Pilou: 1948/51? why not 1947/53? I believe they're all identical, If im incorrect on this , explain the differences please, Im really interested, I know 1954 had a 1 piece windshield..... Thanks, Mike

Yes you are right , 1952 and 53 may also be possible with the split windshield.Concerning 1947 I have doubts , because for most of the year the 1947 Chevy trucks still had the 1941 body shell. The new advanced design was only introduced later in that year so that the probability of finished woodies by Cantrell with the new advanced design body in 1947 seems low.I have checked my documents but have no serials .May be the Antique Automobile Club of America could help.I have pictures of a 1950 Studebaker with an almost identical Cantrell body , dating from 1950.

I believe Chevrolet changed from the old (1941 style) to the new (1947 style) mid year in 1947, according to what Ive been able to determine, Thanks for the reply...Mike
