Model A Tudors do not have 1/4 window garnish mouldings like many think of them as in later cars and other cars. They have the lower window sills only.
The pieces that go up and over the top and back down are thin strips which are upholstered not stamped pieces like other cars.

Only the Coupes and Some Fordors have the full surround 1/4 window mouldings.

The back glass garnish moulding is common to all Model A closed cars with steel roofs. These are not that hard to find at all and were availabel for years as reproductions, have you tried Mac's in Rockport NY?

The door garnishes are only the window openings sills on Coupes, Tudors and Closed Pickups.

The windshield garnishes are strips up each side of the windshield posts.

I'm sure Lebaron-Bonney would have them also.

You might as well buy from Mac's as it oftens comes from there and is usually cheaper. A lot of Lebaron-Bonney stuff and has the Mac's name on the package as the supplier. The only thing that I found cheaper at L-B were the 'A' top irons and wood bows and they are Girtz, regardless. Mac's is in Lockport, NY.

model A interior

Thanks guys. I have the sills, windshield garnish and rear window trim. Got a lot of stuff form Mac's. Don't know how to trim out around the upper door frame and rear window frame. I'm eliminating the roll down feature of the rear windows. need some ideas, or pictures of how others have done it. Not original restoration, but hot rod look. All of the interior wood is gone, most replaced with welded in steel for strength.
