Isaac Guldemond's 1954 Woody

Isaac Guldemond's 1954 Woody Coming out of Canada we have our long time customer Isaac Guldemond's 54' Woody. Originally Isaac had a 54' 2 door but that wasn't quite big enough for him. He ended up buying the Woody in portland from Autotrader. Lucky enough, the car was in decent condition before starting the restoration. Isaac wanted a comfortable ride so he added a ton of parts to his resto rod. -305ci engine -Edelbrock 500cfm carb -Power steering -Single belt serpentine system -Mustang II front tubular a-arms -69 Camaro rear -84 Trans Am disc brakes -Smoothie wheels w/beauty rings -Added center cap & spinner -Coker wide white tires -78 Chevy Van steering column -Grant steering wheel -Added gas door -Ten extra grille teeth -Hidden radio behind speaker grille -Custom wood door panels (Done by Isaac) Isaac did the body, paint, and mechanical work by himself, aside from the wood grain in which his friend Abby Aspin gave a hand. The car has been put to good use since completion. Isaac did a trip down through Bakersfield, onto route 66, The Grand Canyon, and Mt. Rushmore. Once he reached Amarillo, TX. he started heading north up to South Dakota and back home from there. The trip helped add to the 16,000 km he's put on the car in just over a year. What's next for the car? Isaac would like to add fuel injection.
