Not all woodys were station wagons!

Here’s an interesting twist to woody wagon story! This commercial woody panel truck was built on a 1936 International C-1 commercial truck chassis by the York-Hoover Body Company, in York, PA for an unknown client. This style of panel or panel delivery was the type of custom commercial truck body used for home deliveries and by government agencies and service companies to make their rounds.  The York-Hoover Company continued building commercial bus, step-vans and insulated truck bodies until 1957 when it sold off the body division to Pittman Manufacturing to concentrate on caskets. A product that today, makes the York Group one of the industry leaders, and one of the few companies  still in business and have direct roots back to this period in woody wagon building.
