No, I don't think the sides are wooden.  I have one of these models 
(http://www.classic-computers.org.nz/collection/challenger1.htm) and the 
sides are metal.

They are very vintage in apparence and function and I've glad I've got one. 
My oldest computer and the one that really started me collecting.
