The Woody Wagon coil stamp is the sixth design in the American Culture Series that began in 1995. The series includes the Auto Tail Fin, the Juke Box, the Diner, the Lion Statue, and the Atlas Statue. The stamp design is based on the wood-paneled vehicles produced between 1929 and 1953 and used variously to transport guests to and from railroad stations, to accommodate family travel, and to carry surfers and their surfboards to the beach. The stamp pictures a 1949 Ford wagon with a surfboard hanging out the back. This non-denominated 15¢, self-adhesive coil was issued to replace the 1995 Auto Tail Fin stamp for the presorted first class postcard rate.
