Had a station wagon, and had a 30 CCPU. And while I would dearly love to have an open car, for me the most overall practical (and hence what I have) is the Town Sedan - of any flavor.

It wouldn't matter because my two favorite (-OK, three favorite) bodystyles for the Model-A that I would want for my collection are not listed anyway...

First, would be a toss-up between my choice of the Edsel Phaeton or the Drauz Cabriolet, ...and I definitely would love to own the late Ron Rude's Kentucky-bodied 1927 Ford Model-A delivery too.

Regretfully those are all full of wood!
My 165-C is mostly wood and that's what I like about it. Too bad it isn't visible!

A sign in a wooden boat builders shop read; "If God wanted fiberglass boats, he would have made fiberglass trees".

I don't know of any reference to wood and steel cars, so, assume both are good!

My dad liked the Victoria - I must admit I'd like to own a 31 slant window leatherback.
