Probably the most popular car with surf wave riders is the VW bus, followed by the Beetle. But wagons for surfers were also a thing. In fact, the 1957 Ford Country Squire was aimed... squarely at the surfing community.
The County Squire had wood panels all over, but you can't think of woodie wagons without a Dodge popping up in your head - B1B, the Power Wagon, and especially the Coronet.
That Coronet woody wagon will take many of our older readers back to a more carefree time, before cellphones. And we've got just the thing for a double-dose of nostalgia.
We've been following the work of Instagram rendering aficionado adry53customs for about a year, but we never got round to sharing one of his most famous projects, the Challenger Woodie Wagon.
It looks like something Chip Foose would design, riding on massive wheels, with a modified body and a surfing rack. While nobody is going to make a wagon out of the Challenger, we can at least share the Charger-Magnum conversion that's going on right now.
In the early woodies from Dodge and other brands, the wood played a real role in the car, forming functional parts of the doors and trunk. They were also seen as high-end vehicles, as the panels were tricky to fabricate. But it later evolved into a purely esthetic thing, and by the 80s was always made out of vinyl or plastic.
As far as the powertrain in this rendering is concerned, it's pretty difficult to determine. But both the SRT8 badge and the Shaker Hood kit suggest we're dealing with the 485 horsepower 392. Hemi.
