1956 Ford "Big Window" Custom Pick Up

Known affectionately as "Star Wars", this 1956 custom pick up is one of the finest, if not the finest, in the country. This vehicle belonged to former Paso Robles resident, Vern Rauch. Vern passed away in 2015 at his home in Idaho, but he had told his family that he wanted to have the car displayed here in Paso Robles. Vern's brother, Gene, is the owner of the beautiful black 5 window Ford coupe currently on display within the Woodland Auto Display.
