Lifelong learning will keep you alive and vibrant. In this case it was remembering what was forgotten because I haven't been interested in fordors for years. Back in my antique days those fordors were a big thing with the restorers. Not sporty enough for me at 15 years old. Found out 45 years ago that I couldn't afford to restore them and even if I could when I would be done I still wouldn't be able to go fast enough.

OK..... am confused...Did Ford just have two different bodies...the Briggs and the Murray? Or was it three...Briggs, Murray, and Ford?

Yes, Ford contracted with briggs and murray to build other models like the fordors and cabriolets.

Kind of like the "body by fisher" tags you see on some GM stuff.
Check out this PDF list of model A body numbers listed by manufacturers. I woud assume that the spaces left blank indicate that it was body by ford.

Thanks for the acknowledgement, Mike!

If those first pictures had shown anything but the front view this whole discussion may have been shorter. But a lot of folks got a little mental exercise and many readers now realize that all old cars don't really look alike.
That's why kids back when and through the 60s could tell you what a car was at a good distance. Kids today can probably do the same but not many adults can. Heck, I can recognize some of those funky logos like the Honda H in a square and the Toyota bull and the Subaru constellation but at a distance , good luck.

Sooo true.... I remember in the 60s in my teens, watching cars out on the highway at my grandparents farm. I could tell you what make, model and maybe the year from 1/4 mile away AT NIGHT from how the lights reflected off the bumper and grill.

Well, I got into this too late to add my lowly input. I went through my photo files looking for the pics of an original 32 Chevy and ruled that out quick. I looked at some of the model As and was going to say Yep, its a model A (three hinges in the right place) and the V stiffener on the fire wall. Good job Pros!!!
