This Car's My Baby

The “My Baby” exhibit is a single car exhibit featuring one of the most impactful cars from a Pacific Northwest collector. Collectors are typically chosen due to their relationship with America’s Car Museum, while cars are oftentimes chosen due to the story behind them rather than rarity or value. Truly making this display about a collector’s “Baby”.

The “Baby” currently featured is a 1948 Ford Woodie Wagon loaned to ACM from the collection of
John Hogan.

This Woodie Wagon was one of the last all wooden body cars built. Ford ceased production due to the high costs of production and maintenance. The paint is in its original color of Glade Green. The Hogan family lovingly restored their Woodie after its purchase in 2001.
