Default 1930 bumpers

I have a 1930 Tudor. All this time I thought it had Stainless bumpers but I have a magnet that sticks to them. I thought the 28 and 29's were supposed to have chrome ones and the 30 and 31's stainless. I guess it only really matters when you want to use the right polish on them. I also read somewhere that after August they switched to 60'' bumpers.

Per the "Restoration Guidelines" page 15-1 = "All original Model A bumpers were chrome plated."



Some of the reproduction ones are stainless.

And, there are a various alloys regarded as stainless steel and some will attract a magnet.
