    Looks like a 30 31 sedan that had the header/ leading edge of the roof swapped.

    Ford didn't make that body. It is a two door sedan 30 31 but someone has modified it to resemble a deuce. Lots of work....hope they did it well as it actually looks better than what Henry was pushing down the line.

    That looks so right. I have to imagine it was a lot of work.

  6. Henry never made a Model A with a solid top. So ya, someone with a little Talent fixed it. Also note the drip rail treatment.

    Well it's for sale so I'm going to go look at it this weekend... I will see how well it's done.... The gentleman that was building it passed away some time ago and his wife is selling it.... Has the fenders and a grille also has a title... She is asking 5500 dollars...

    Well i went and looked at the car... It has been a long term project that has been thru several owners... the person that did the body did not do the frame... The good.. Body is pretty nice... metal work is good. top is filled with panel out of a van or jeep Cherokee... front header panel is done well... . body is NOT rusty... doors open and close and line up pretty nice... has a new walker radiator .... has a polyethylene 32 gas tank and a fiber glass tank cover.... it has a clear Missouri title ...
    The questionable .... windshield has a piano hinge across the top of it... has a set of fenders that can be salvaged ... The bad ..... the frame is original and has been boxed poorly... has a mopar rear end with crude ladder bars ... has a Chevy V-8 with automatic that have been sitting a long time... has a early 40,s ford front axle ... radius rods and drum brakes ,, all the mounts and brackets are pretty crude .. frame is not something I would use.....or recommend anyone too... I didn't buy .... i have enough projects .... i already have a 30 model A 2 door sedan and was thinking of swapping the body onto my frame and putting my body on that frame and selling it... If anyone is interested the Car is listed on ST Louis craigslist ... auto parts section ... listed as a 1930... just the year... or send me a pm and i can give you the contact info.... Bill
