Welcome to Fordbarn!! Have your searched the archives here for Fordbarn? I believe you will find the answer to your question answered many times over. Knowing what bodystyle of kit you plan to order also helps us give you an answer.

Very easy answer.

Fordwood wood is not nearly as well made as Classic Wood wood.

Fordwood wood takes a LONG time to get. Classic wood is sold by all the good dealers and is generally available.

Also.....prices on Classic Wood going up jan 1. Buy before then.

Bought the tack wood for the back seat of our 29 Phaeton from Fordwood. The center piece either fell off of Noah's Ark, or was part of Moses' staff. I tried kerfing this piece of wood to get it to fit the body, but gave up. Recently bought the same three pieces from Mike's. The center piece was cut in a curve that required very little effort to get it to fit the body. Plus, the two end pieces have nicely beveled edges; the Fordwood pieces do not.

I bought the complete top wood kit for my Special coupe years ago (early eighties) and it all fit together well, only needed a light sanding after assembly, one piece over the rear window had the arch curve reversed but they remade and sent it promptly.

Had a nice chat with the owner of Classic Wood today, I'll be buying the top wood kit for my '31 Slant Window Fordor from him. The prices are going up after the first of January due to a wood bore that has infested forests that supply ash. Bob
