I have a Model A Tudor, and didn't realize that they had data plates. My understanding was that the only numbers on them was stamped on the frame rails, and the engine numbers.

These guys do it, but they are not cheap:

You could go to the McMaster Carr site. They have embossing punches that are reversed letters and numbers designed to punch from the back side.

I gather you are not trying to reproduce something that was not originally on a Model A but just want to have a nice looking serial number plate.

The reproduction Body Tags for Briggs and Murray bodies had numbers which were simply sequential to the BODY not the car itself. Not that any DMV employee, inspector, or potential buyer would ever know that.

Get a metal stamp set and stamp the numbers matching your paperwork into the existing engine and frame rail. Done deal.

Ford didn't use raised numbers that I'm aware of. Even the body ID numbers on the Murray/Briggs, or whoever built the particular body tags are stamps.
