The first woody to have an all steel roof
1942 Chrysler Barrel Back Town and Country Estate Wagon

The 1941 Town and Country was a clear departure from conventional thought as to how a station wagon should look.
Station wagons offered by other manufacturers of the era had bodies made almost completely out of wood from the cowl back and were boxy in appearance.
By comparison, the Town and Country was sleek and modern, more like a fastback sedan. The rear cargo doors opened like a clamshell, as opposed to the traditional and more utilitarian tailgate design.
