I've always wanted to swap the body of a Station Sedan onto the frame and front clip of a 22nd/23rd Series Custom or 23rd Series Super Deluxe. I think the result of the extra 7 inches and egg crate grill would look really nice. I agree with 'Owen_Dyneto' that the subject Station Sedan is at best a parts car. Here's a photoshopped version of what I'd like to see for real.


This was done by somebody on the West Coast, possibly Norcal many years ago and was a very attractive vehicle.

Seems like there is a green wagon in the Citizens Motor Company/Dayton, OH collection with an extended front clip from a Super. Gives the car the longer sleeker appearance discussed. Anyone have a photo?

Yes, I've seen photos of that one. It's got the extra 7 inches but I would keep all the woodwork, leave off the 23rd series side stainless, and use a 22nd series Custom grill and surrounding chrome that wraps to the wheel well. I'd also use the cloisonne hubcaps and 22nd series tail lights.
