stock height of Model-A Ford

I've searched and searched online but can't find this. Anyone know the stock roof eight of a Model A Coupe, say by way of the window glass height? I'm trying to determine how much chop mine had done.
Thank you!

1930 Model A Coupe. Unfortunately I do not know the trim/model. It's hot-rodded out and I wouldn't know how to tell. I had thought all Model A Coupe's had the same body dimensions and the trim dictated certain features such a rumble seat, spare tire mount, bumpers, etc. It's not a cabriolet but a traditional steel roof coupe with the soft-insert.

When I looked up height they had 9 different models, So when they ask which model for height, that pretty much tells me, they aren't all the same. I'm not saying they have 9 top heights, but Ford did build some Model As in 1927, I don't think they came out until Aug. or Sept., as they stopped the Model T in July. Why do you need to know how much it was chopped?

I scanned a section of Bratton's Antique Auto Parts catalog showing the dimensions of the Model A rear window glass. The dimensions shown for a 1930-31 Ford Model A Coupe 45-B are 23 1/2" wide by 10 1/2" high with a 1 1/2" radius in the corners.

If you measure the height of your existing rear window glass and compare it to the above dimensions you will get a fairly good idea of how much the top has been chopped. That is provided that the rear window area was reduced in size the same as the rest of the top. Sometimes the rear window area is treated separately to allow a larger rear window.

I have also included a scan of the Model A Coupe quarter windows for a comparison. The height of the quarter window glass ranges from 15 3/32" to 15 5/32" in height.
