of 1927, the new & improved Fords were rolling off the line. Similar styling
to the Model T's, but the new Model A's were very different. There is a slot in
the floor, for the emergency brake, located on the driver's side sill near
where your left foot rests. It may be covered with an oblong plate. This is
an "AR" body style. 1928 and 1929 models were identical, but were more
standardized. Please let us know if you have an "AR" when you
order, because the wood is different.
Most Model A cars had a
"soft top" or "cloth top". Some had canvas, some had a rubber type
vinyl on the top, and some had the top material covering the entire roof area, but other
just covered the top bow area.
The Ford factory sometimes interchanged the header and matching sheet metal of the
1930 Tudor Sedan and the 1930 Closed Cab Pickup. We find this in 1% of
we replace. The Tudor is 4
inches, and the Closed Cab Pickup is 3&3/4". Please measure before

Standard cars are the same. These terms are used for trim on the interior
We have seen "original" wood, where the Ford wood workers had carved away
on the wood pieces until a piece would fit a particular car, but not another car
the same body or the same year. Parts were still being installed by a
person and in some
states dealers were still Titling cars on the date it sold, not the
year it was made!
