We have another example (or even the same one) listed as Fleetwood 75: /vehicle_393911-Cadillac-Fleetwood-75-1939.html

I am not sure what would be the correct name.
For those of the 50s~70s, they were sold as "Commercial Chassis" before being modified by other companies, but for older ones like this I have no idea.

Another good Catch, CougarTim - I bet that '33 Ford phaeton in the foreground is the one used here - it was even in at least one Three Stooges short as well.

Fully restored, still in California (at least it was in 2009). More pictures.

The Joseph Wildanger Company of Shrewsbury, New Jersey once was a highly respected coachbuilder for this type of wooden conversions during the late 1930s and 1940s and Mr. Wildanger initially learned his craft building carriages in Vienna. The company also built this 1939 Cadillac Station Wagon and after having compared a lot of manufacturing and styling details between these two (incl. metal fittings, position and style of bolts etc.), I'm convinced this Fleetwood Series 75-based woody wagon has been handbuilt by the Jos. Wildanger Co..
