    A friend of mine just picked this body up and was told it was a Model A. The firewall, cowl vent, and slanted 'a' pillars with the stamped reveal have me questioning that. Can anyone tell me for sure what she's got?

    That was my imediate thought, I was thinking maybe a Chevy but I havent been able to find a good picture of the firewall stamping on one yet.

    doesn't look like a Chevy either.

    Way too much metal holding the body together to be a GM

    Keep looking...

    1930 Pontiac? Thou the visor would have a stamped peak in the middle.
    Crap looks like they have an oval rear window.

    Edit; looks like a '31 Poncho

    IDK maybe not. The belt line looks a lot thicker on the Pontiac, with less area between the window.
    Also, rear door has 3 hinges, looks like only 2 on the OP's.

    Could also be an Oakland. Very similar to a Pontiac.

    So far the poncho and oakland look the closest, but the firewall stamping and rear hinges dont match. The hudson appears to have concealed hinges in all the pics Ive seen.

    Pontiac and Oakland had wood body structures, didn't they? This is a metal body.

    Looks like a 1930 Lincoln. But I can't really see the detail of the back window.
