Re: Edgewater NJ Model "A" Assenbly Line

Headlamps were aligned & focused at end of the line, hence the downward tilt beforehand.

Re: Model A with T mods or Model T with A mods ??

This is intriguing. Based on '28 '29 Patrickt, not '30'31.

Re: Tudor pronunciation

It was a fancy way to for Ford to write 'two door'& 'four door'. I have read 'Tudor' was first used by Ford Canada [1922?].

Re: USA Victor AF small bore gasket .

Yes, Ford Canada did offer small bore engines for export but we can only speculate where they [engine blocks] originated.
Among Ford Canada Export records are listed...

Only available from mid 1931 on the Deluxe Coupe & could be ordered on the std. Coupe at cost. You could argue that the Sport Coupe also had a drop rear window, but somewhat different. Cheers.
