model A roof metal

Hello out there.Webb here,I have a31 A 4 door I want to put a full metal roof on.Any ideas on the best doner sta wagon or old van? The curved section above the doors is fairly good metal,rusty but cleans ok.I"m in process of grinding about 3 gallons of bondo & glass from prev owners so I can have hopefully an all metal car.Thanx in advance this is a great place.

Various mini vans work well. Just get the roof rib pattern you like. I did a 29 2-dr sedan a couple years ago and used a Dodge van roof. Turned upside down to get the ribs to look correct.
