The vehicle featured here is our 1928 Chevrolet Depot Hack Woody. This is a unique vehicle called a "depot hack". Today we call these taxi cabs but back during the 20's and 30’s these cabs certainly looked different. The depot hack received its name because many of these large vehicles were purchased by railroad stations that used them to take passengers to their hotel.

These were also the woody's long before Ford began building their popular woody's for individual use. The earliest woody's however were the wood bodied depot hacks like the one shown here and were specifically built to carry people along with their luggage.

The woody vehicles are considered the forerunners of what America came to know as the "station wagon". Most contend that the station wagon began with the depot hacks and evolved through the 1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon. The term station wagon appears to have begun around the late 1920's. Today's station wagon could be called an SUV.

Our 1928 Chevrolet Woody-Suburban or Depot Hack Desert Coach is from California and has been a well maintained Woody Hack. It is equipped with a 4 cylinder 35HP Inline 4. This was the last year of the in-line 4-cylinder engine in this model and the first year for mechanical brakes. The ‘28 is equipped with a 3-Speed Selective manual transmission, 21” steel disc wheels and the electrical system has been converted to 12 Volt.

"It has been two months to the day, since I took delivery of my '64 Studebaker. I am so happy to have her in my garage, in Albany, NY. My purchase experience with you and Masterpiece Vintage Cars was nothing short of "outstanding." As you know I am first time classic car buyer, and so I was very nervous purchasing a classic car sight unseen, some 1200 miles away in Indiana, and from a firm I had no previous knowledge of. Well, from the outset of my dealings with you, you made me feel comfortable talking to you. Thank you for patiently answering every one of my questions and for helping me understand every step of this process. You made it so easy! In summary the car (64 Studebaker Daytona) was exactly as you advertised and described to me. The photos on your website were spot on, absolutely no discrepancies with what was presented to me and then delivered to my home. The financials and transaction paperwork process went very smoothly and subsequently the registering and plating of my '64 Studebaker in New Your state took only 20 minutes. The shipment of new 'old classic car' to my home went perfectly. I do not have a single complaint. I could go on and on as to how pleased I am with my purchase of a classic Studebaker, however I have to get back to work. I will close by saying thank you so much for making my purchase such a smooth and great experience. I find myself looking at your website every day, looking to purchase another classic car from you. I have the classic car collectors bug, and you are the reason for it."
-Brian Gabriel, Albany, NY. 1964 Studebaker Daytona
