Station wagons dated to the dawn of motoring, where they were also referred to as cargo wagons and depot hacks. They generally featured aftermarket bodies mounted on a car or light-truck chassis and were primarily used for what their name implied: going to a railway station to fetch passengers or cargo and delivering them to a customer, a business, a luxury resort, or hotel. Ford produced its first factory-built station wagon — basically a wooden box with four doors — with the 1929 Model A. Those first Ford station wagons were effectively marketed as light-duty commercial vehicles.
