My friend owns a 1930 Ford, so I made him a replica to honor its 90th year.

I’m sure he is pleased with the replica of his Model A Ford. For accuracy you should note that the body is not flat from top to bottom. There is an inward curve toward the running board splash aprons. Likewise the body is not straight on the sides from the door hinge pillar to the back corner. The front axle is directly under the radiator.

Phil, Not all things are as they should be but as they are perceived to be. The reality is I am in Idaho, and the car is in California. The only image I have is the one of it setting on a trailer and what other photos I could find on the internet. I can appreciate your interest for detail, so let’s just call this a REPRESENTATION of a 1930 Ford.

No problem, Festus. I have made my own representations of cars. I was also the editor of the national judging standards for the two national Model A Ford clubs (1989). It took 250 pages to describe an authentic Model A Ford. LOL

I can imagine that street rods and rat rods would dive you crazy.
