Default late 20's early 30's Ford Model A

I am kicking around the idea of building a 28-32 Ford Model A sedan. Can someone please give me rough idea on width and length of body by itself and also total car when done.

Click the link below. It contains all the body dimensions for 28/29 Model A's. 30/31 should be close to the same.

By the way, a 32 is not a Model A. It's a different body style.

Gastrick,

Isn't that when they actually changed the model designation to a "Model B" along with the introduction of the first V8 engines? I may be wrong... but I think I'm right.

Let me know ok?

Correct T-1, although technically, only the four cylinder models were actually Model B's. The V-8 cars were designated as Model 18's but were/are most commonly just referred to as Ford V-8's. The 32's were a one year only body style.

FYI - The 33/34 cars were designated by Ford as model 40's
