However, if...

Re: How do you lock a 31 Victoria?

It’s the remote where the inside handle mounts
There’s a setting on the spring and unit that locks it

Re: Door Handle

What body style?
Where would you get a locking handle for that side? Simply just turn it upside down?
Slant bodied cars would be a challenge

Re: 30-31 Open Car lower Windshield Stanchions

There were brass ones but the later ones are steel. Steel ones more easily restored IMHO
The brass ones were earlier, that's why they are likely on a 30 car.

Re: 32 Cabriolet rumble seat gap ?

Are the rumble stops present and set correctly?
IE is the lid at the appropriate angle? On a Model A, the gap does widen if the lid goes “deeper” into the opening
