I don't know! Just curious about the color! When I looking for pictures and read some threads, I realized the Commercial Gray color listed! So the curiosity kill the cat!

There was the Commercial Gray that was dropped in August 1928, There was Cherokee Gray for the Deluxe pick up until July 1931. Then there was the Seagull gray available after July 1931. Information from the "Model A Judging Standards". The French Gray #586 1928, 30-36 from "Antique Ford Repaint Manual by Ditzler". My late 1931 A pick up is Seagull Gray. It looks lighter in the photo than it really is. See photo.

That's as close as I've ever seen to what I imagine an original later 28 or 29 Pickup would have looked like in the Commercial Drab color....while keeping in mind that computer images come with a color variation factor.....

Belt rail pinstripe dealer option,nice touch!

By the way, do you have any experience in restoring your metal channel top bows on your PU? I am in the process of doing that and I scraped out the asphalt strips that were caked and deteriorated inside the meltal channel. What do you suggest I replace it with? Some have suggested ABS Plastic. Others recommend rawhide strips. Some even suggested resin-soaked wood chips (not my preference). Any suggestions?

Excuse my English now!! 😅 Are you talking about the structure of the non folding top?

Those were your pictures, not sure what happened....

I was able to find another of that Pickup, along with what you posted. Good example of difference in coloring...
