Default Ford's BEST looking Model A body style is...

If you had to pick but one (1) Model A Ford body style (just one (1) you guys and gals)...that Ford produced between 1928 and 1931, that when you see it your going "man, I wish I had that one"...which one would it be?

My vote is for the 1929 Business Coupe with oval windows.

What is yours?

Pluck

1931 68 C Cabriolet, but I do like the 1929 Business Coupe with the oval windows as I have one!

I like so many styles about equally well, that it would be hard to pick just one. Town Car, Delux Delivery, and Oval window Business Coupe are all right at the top.

I've always wondered why such a beautiful car as the Oval Window Business Coupe was such a short time in production?

I'm with you Steve. My favourite body style is the 29 business coupe. None were bought to Oz originally, but I have been acquiring parts to have one eventually.

Of course I am partial to the 150B's, but If I had to pick just one for outright looks I would have to agree with Mike K.

For me, it is often the car we just finished restoring , ...however from a 'cool factor' and the history behind that particular vehicle, my favorite body style vote is the 1927 Delivery owned by Ron Rude.

I've always been partial to the 1928-29 Tudor. Yup, it's kind of a "plain jane" compared to some of the other body styles - but it matches me in inclination and persona.

I remember as a kid having one of the AMT models of the 29 Tudor and thinking what a square box - particularly in rear view - but I liked it even then.

Now havng said that I think a close second and one I might act on is to have a 28-29 RPU minus the top. Yes, I know they weren't made that way and the top was "non-removable" as originally provided by Ford. But I can't imagine a more fun car to head to the beach or the dump or even to pick up a load of lumber on a warm Saturday morning.

A small load of lumber that is.

Does Edsel’s Dual-cowl Phaeton count? Otherwise my DD 130A.
