Now for something completely different and special, a custom built bar based on a surfer woodie station wagon.
With the look of a 1940s Ford “Woodie” station wagon this custom built bar pays tribute to the surfer culture and its links to a special vehicle beloved of Southern California surfers. Jan and Dean celebrated that tie in a song originally written for the Beach Boys by Brian Wilson called “Surf City.” The opening line goes; “I bought a '34 wagon and we call it a woodie.” The Beach Boys also recorded an instrumental called, “Boogie Woodie.”
The most stunning feature of this “woodie bar” is the metallic flake red paint job on the front end of the car body and the equally impressive grill. The headlights and taillights both actually work and are wired to an inverter that plugs into 110V.
Rescued from a tavern with a “surfer” theme, this bar features a highly polished surf board complete with tail fin as the bar top. The footrest resembles a chromed exhaust pipe. Mirrors have been mounted on the back of the bar to resemble the windows of the “woodie.” The rear view mirror is even shaped like a surfboard.
The entire unit is on a tube steel chassis with 6 casters for easy movement.
The black finish on the floor and backside are pickup bed liner material that makes it waterproof.
Purchasing this special piece of automobilia will be a big help to the Saratoga Auto Museum; the consigner will donate any proceeds above the reserve price to support the Saratoga Auto Museum's important Distracted Driver and Educational programs.
This beautiful, one of a kind tribute to the days of surfin' and woodies, will give the owner something special to talk about when entertaining friends and fellow automobile enthusiasts.
