    I'm assuming you mean this one...pics really help get results here...

    I don't have the measurements however this will help those that do understand which panel.​

    Is it a Brookville Panel? There are others...but they are a pretty popular supplier.

    They call it this on ebay...

    Ford Model A Coupe Roadster Below Deck Lid Panel 1930-1931

    9 1/4" h x...I'm snooping I suppose you may have one for another model in error.

    @sloppy jalopies any panels with measurements for this Hamber?

    From what I can see 30/31 Coupe/Roadster are same however I have a 29 and I can't as of yet find them online...

    Heres a handy drawing though...

    Here is the description listed in the Bratton's Model A catalog. Roadster or Coupe, 1930-31, across top 35 and 5/8" across bottom, 35 and 3/8" and 9 and 7/16" tall, with bottom bead. I replaced the same panel as you, but on a '29. The measurement on a '29 is, 7 and 1/2" tall and the first panel I received was 7 and 3/4", sent it back, next panel I received almost 7 and 13/16". I had to cut it and weld the top for the correct fit. Reproduction panels need some work to get them to fit properly.

    Woodie, same thing on my '29 panel. I got mine from Howells and it took so long to get it, I didn't dare send it back for another one. I ended up breaking a new bottom edge so it was about 1/8" shorter vertically.
