In my Haynes manual, under the section of jacking and towing, the picture shows an ea81 wagon with a woodgrain exterior and some nice chrome wheels
Who has one?
Are they rare?

Ive seen a few woodgrain cars in american movies but have neverheard on one in aust

Old american cars had a lot of wood grain,mostly wagons. Before 1948 it was not uncommon to have acutal wood as the panneling. Subarus on the other hand did have it for a few years, early EA-81 or late EA-71 wagons, it could have been a dealer installed option. I have a complete set of the wood grain stickers that i found at the dealership, no i won't be parting with them any time soon.

I think someone on the board had a gen1 woody wagon. It was a kit offered by the dealer, I think moosens had one in new old stock condition?
