Model A’s don’t move to fast. Try also AACA. But 5K sounds about right if the wood has been replaced and the under carriage is solid.

Re: VIN number 1930-A

When I registered my car from Oregon, they had put a sticker in the door jamb and the DMV used that. I DID NOT tell them about the frame number.

Re: 4 Blackened Spark Plugs?

For a comp gauge adaptor just order/use the base to a 3X plug. The suppliers carry them for a few dollars each.

Re: The Fordor you have when you're not having a Fordor.

I don’t think it is a funeral coach-to short. I think what they did is stretch a Tudor and added either more legroom or a third seat facing backwards. I have seen it in other cars of our era.
