Default Model A Sedan conversion to delivery

Does anyone know if there is a kit that converts a model A Tudor Sedan to a Sedan Delivery? I had seen a kit many years ago but can't find anything current. Tnx for any pointers.

I think that kit was a part from Gibbon's Fiberglass for 28/29, --which is no longer being manufactured. It was not really close in design to original ...and it was fiberglass. If you are adamant about creating your own, consider fabricating it from steel moving the upper moulding rearward and creating all the other necessary features.

If anyone does the conversion and needs the inside rear metal corners...I have two sets. Mine were missing so I borowed an original set from a friend in Canada, made a wooden buck, bought a bead roller and made three sets. Not Henry, but once installed, they look right .

I just purchased a fiber-glass 1931 deluxe sedan delivery body and plan on installing the side windows. Builder was Hot Rods In the Desert in Tucson.

I bought a rear door and body panel for a 28/29 from Shooter a couple of years ago. His website is still there:

email 1st shooters@dancom.com If you must 434-250-1413

You should contact Pleasantville Manufacturing Company in Pleasantville, NY.
Their phone number is: 716-753-2238 and their website is countryx@fairpoint.net.

I am not affiliated with them, but I've seen their work and it's really good.
Hope this helps.

Before you go to the trouble and expense, find a SD and take a long drive, especially in city traffic, might change your mind.

WOW, this once came out of the mothballs, didn't it?? Over 2 years ago the OP asks a question and never returns to offer thanks or give an update.
