This 1929 Oldsmobile station wagon is the only known J.T. Cantrell & Company bodied 1929 Oldsmobile woody wagon ever built and has received a complete restoration. Excellent condition top to bottom. Runs and drives perfectly, all features work. The engine is a 197 cubic inch Inline 6 cylinder, making 61 horsepower. Floor shifted 3 speed sliding gear manual transmission. 18" wood-spoke wheels with white wall tires in excellent condition. Guide brand fog lamps. Bright chrome bumpers, lamps, radiator shell. Roll up windshield. Complete restoration was performed on an already solid vehicle. No rust, no rot. Beautiful historic vehicle and has been featured in the May 2008 issue of Old Cars Weekly. There is extensive documentation of restoration work and information on Cantrell & Co. Joseph Theodore Cantrell established his company in 1905, primarily repairing buggies, carriages, and wagons. As their "Depot Wagons" became more popular they began building "Estate cars" for wealthy easterners. Most of the Cantrell wood bodies were built on Ford and Dodge chassis. The high quality of Cantrell's bodies was not only recognized in the United States but in many foreign countries as well. Cantrell Suburbans, the company's preferred name for their wood wagon bodies, could be seen on the roads of France, England, Ireland, Russia, Sweden, and the Hawaiian Islands. During WWII Cantrell became a major supplier of stretched troop transport wagons for both the military and civil defense duties. Detroit's first passenger car based all steel station wagons appeared in 1949 and their immediate acceptance and popularity with the buying public marked the beginning of the end for J.T. Cantrell & Company. Between 1949 and 1958 Cantrell concentrated on body production for 1/2 to 1 ton truck chassis for Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, and Studebaker. Unfortunately, these orders were too few and far between and Cantrell ceased production in September 1958. Call or email [email protected] or 715-687-4522

Kuyoth's Klassics is located in Stratford, Wisconsin. We specialize in American muscle cars, antiques, collector and exotic autos. We are proud of our Midwestern roots, work ethic and small town values. Our owner, Troy Kuyoth, grew up in a family business where he was exposed to mechanics and his family’s fascination with cars (mainly making them go very fast). His interest turned toward body work and car restoration (and a bunch of racing in his free time). When his dad dedicated a portion of his repair shop to him, he began sourcing old cars, mainly Mustangs, and dove into the restoration process. As he became more in demand, he added staff, and eventually expanded to a larger facility (still in Stratford). The business once again morphed from classic car restorations to commercial body work, collision, sandblasting, complete custom builds and full restorations. We are staffed by an incredibly talented group of people, some of whom have been here since the early days of that small corner in the back of his dad's shop over 25 years ago, and for that we are grateful. Most recently Kuyoth Body & Custom has morphed once again to take on car sales. Kuyoth’s Klassics is another offshoot of the business where we buy, sell and consign quality classic cars. These days, Troy spends much of his time sourcing cars, cultivating relationships with classic car enthusiasts and attending car events and shows, while back at the ranch, his staff maintains and delivers a very quality product in their respective area of the business. Whether you are a local or an international buyer, we can assist you with finding the car of your dreams. If you have a classic or collectible you are looking to part with, let us know, we are always looking to buy or trade good quality classics.
