Introduced in January, 1929 as part
of the new Model A line (and named the Model 150-A), the first
'assembly line' station wagon sold for $695. It was still
linked with Ford's commercial vehicles, but used mostly components
from the automotive line. The body is made of maple with
birch paneling, and was specified with an 8-passenger capacity.
Shades of today's minivans, you could remove the 2nd and 3rd row
of seats for additional cargo capacity.
4,959 of these wagons were produced
in 1929. They were assembled at both Murray and at the Baker-Raulang
Co. in Cleveland.
Interestingly enough, although Ford
was finally producing a wagon 'in-house', various other manufacturer's
were still putting wagon bodies on Ford chassis in 1929.
