From 1946 to 1948, Ford offered the first woodie convertible, the Sportsman. Built on a V8 powered Deluxe chassis, it was Ford's first model to cost $2000 since the 1908 Model K. This 1948 model was one of only 29 convertibles built in that last year. It was know for its beautiful mahogany panel which were actual WWll surplus retrieved from a plant that had produced gliders. This DM modeled a Sportsman that recently sold at RM auction for around a quarter million US.
