Woodys Chasing Big Game in Africa!

1948 Ford Two-Ton Woody Truck.

She’s not a beauty but she sure is functional and strong!  This locally built woody wagon was used in South Africa during the early fifties for tourists trekking, and big game hunts. Note the unusual structural wood framework over the rear wheels used to keep this body rigid and deal with the tough terrain. Thankfully these days have mostly passed us by!
