Fashionistas like to harp about accessorizing, and indeed, collector cars can benefit from a well-coordinated accessory as well, such as the Pierce-Arrow Travel Lodge we highlighted the other day. This 1950 Packard woodie station wagon for sale on Hemmings.com is remarkable enough to stand on its own, but the seller has decided to pair it with a Penn Yan Aristocrat wooden outboard boat. From the seller’s description:
Model 3201, 135bhp, 288 cu. in. inline L-head eight-cylinder engine, column shift manual transmission, independent front with rear semi-elliptic leaf springs and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 120″
Painted in the original Packard Ivory color with completely restored wood, this stylish 1950 Packard Woodie Wagon has undergone an extensive frame-up cosmetic restoration. The wood was professionally restored and refinished to showroom condition. From its “Goddess of Speed” hood ornament to the rear bumperettes, the chrome is free of any serious blemishes with excellent sheen.
Mechanically, all aspects of the drivetrain were fully serviced and rebuilt where necessary for future trouble-free motoring. The original Packard straight eight runs smoothly and the three-speed transmission shifts quietly and easily. Full bumperettes front and rear, twin mirrors and a spotlight add to the Fifties flavor.
Touring in this iconic woodie station wagon is much more relaxing and enjoyable, thanks to the fitting of Vintage air conditioning, safer wide whitewall radial tires and a period exterior sunvisor.
While the boat has not been fully restored, it has had a good amount of cosmetic refinishing, including fresh paint, varnish and interior, which notably matches the interior of the Packard as well. The Penn Yan Aristocrat also features a period Mercury outboard on an original and color-matching Tee-nee trailer (which is absolutely adorable all by itself!). The Aristocrat Runabout, with its painted red hull, comes fully equipped for pleasure boating, including wooden water skis and other period boating accessories.
