Thats one of those Uber rare "textured" dashes that only came in the early 31 Henway models, right?

I am suprised they were able to blast it without blowing holes in it. Wow, it should have gone to their scrap iron pile, worth more that way. Rod

This is the rare late 31 Australian instrument panel, which is why it seems upside down to us here in the northern hemisphere.

See what happens when you offer free listings.

Here is a generator that must have come from the same car.

While viewing the ebay item (or whatever you want to link to) just left click on the address bar at the top, so it is highlighted in blue, then right click on "COPY" and come back to Fordbarn. Inside the message box right click so you get the drop down menu, and click on "PASTE", and the link will be here:

BTW, for that much money I would have sold the mint original out of my 1928.

Item condition:Used
“original item but has gas residue on it”

See what honesty gets you?
