Ronn Pittman has a collection of station wagon promos and models that he is selling to all interested wagon owners. You can write to him at:
1024 S. Raddant Rd.
Batavia, IL 60510
Clarence Young has a very nice resin model for sale called a "53 Deerborne Crestwood woody station wagon". He also has a newly available metal model of a '49 Deerborne woody in dark blue metallic. There is other station wagon automobilia available elsewhere on his website.
Bob Wilson of Wilson Classics has a unique Hobie surfboard calendar that features a 1951 Ford Woody wagon.
Did you know that there were station wagons given away as prizes during the 50's and 60's? Paul Duca has a number of episodes of the original version of THE PRICE IS RIGHT that aired in the 50s and 60s (re-broadcast on the Game Show Network). He has a nice selection of station wagons offered as prizes on them, including:
1958 Chrysler New Yorker Town and Country
1958 Mercury Commuter
1958 Rambler Cross Country
1959 Rambler Cross Country--two different ones
1959 Ford Country Squire
1961 Rambler Classic
1962 Chevrolet Bel Air
1963 Mercury Colony Park
1963 Mercury Comet Villager
1964 Chevrolet Impala
If you are interested in any of these, let him know. He also has the first episode of the Bob Barker version from September 4, 1972, with a Chevrolet Vega Kammback. This is one that will never be shown on GSN or anywhere else in full during Barker's lifetime, because the prize won by the contestant to get up on stage to get the wagon was a fur coat. Barker has refused to allow shows with furs to be broadcast.
