    Recently Acquired 27 Tudor. Need measurements for rear body panels and windshield frame. I have not been able to find those. Found measurements for all of the other panels but nothing for the rear. Any ideas on who sells those panels?
    Thanks

    Go over to Nederland and get your stuff from Howells. Are you sure its a 27? Henry shut the factory down in April 1927 so there's a lot more 26s than 27s

    Generally you can use the headlight bar as an indicator, 26's had individual posts while 27's had a single bar like other later model Fords, plus the front closed car door hinges
    26's have the finger style while the 27's have similar to the Model A closed cab pickup.
    Also another indicator is the 27 coupes (not sure about other body styles) generally had wood work around the rear and quarter windows, while the 26's had a sheet metal frame configuration.

    Thanks for your responses. I must have a 26 because of the headlights.
