GENERAL:
The 1950 Special Deluxe station wagon was the last of the Plymouth woodies. The new steel bodied station wagons were cheaper to produce and easier to maintain, and the the wood bodied cars could no longer compete. The 1950 came with the same body style as the '49, with a different grill and a different rear bumper.
