The immediate post-war years brought a lot of unique automotive ideas to the forefront, and the major auto and truck manufacturers were far from immune to the trend, as we see from Thomas B. Garrett’s article in SIA #95, October 1986 on the woodie station wagon prototype that Diamond-T built in 1946 and that hasn’t been seen since the late 1940s. Tucker fans will get a little charge over the mention of some shenanigans involving both this wagon and that other late 1940s Chicago-based manufacturer.
By the way, that smaller station wagon mentioned in the story has since been found and restored. Photos and the story behind that one are in the February 2005 issue of Vintage Truck.
