Mattel's rendition of the "Old Time Classic" took shape exclusively in the United States, where it remained in production for approximately three years. It drew inspiration from the original 1931 Ford Station Wagon, affectionately known as "The Woody" due to its iconic wood-paneled sides. The Hot Wheels version of the Classic '31 Ford Woody, although entirely die-cast, aimed to capture the essence of this design by simulating the wood panels within the casting.
This timeless model boasted a clear windshield. Early editions featured a flat black-painted roof, while later releases introduced a textured glossy black-painted roof, mimicking the appearance of real vinyl.
Nestled behind the black-painted radiator was an exposed engine, and the unpainted metal base of the casting incorporated eight side pipes, with four on each side. The Woody also featured wide front and rear fenders, effectively creating integrated running boards. It was available with either a white or dark interior and came fitted with medium wheels in the front and larger ones at the rear.
