BTW, RHD support brackets are not available from the vendors. I belive they were used in 1931. As far as I know, no Model As came to this country in 1931.
Ford Aust. did produce & sell Model A's in 1931 & 1932, it is just that they were 1930 models. They would have had enough inventory due to low sales that there was no need to use the '31 parts, although I believe some '31 engine numbers are recorded.
Canada did have a RHD '31 column support, it was available here in NZ. My neighbour who had a late '30 still has a spare one but not cheap [$100 NZ].
