Berts was working on those
To be correct, Vic and sedan are not the same bracket

I believe that the 160 series sedans and the Victoria use the same sun visors.
My 160B and my 190A both have the same sun visors and mounting brackets.

How ever there are 2 different sun visor mounting brackets.
The first picture is from my unrestored Victoria and the 2nd is from the late David Moore unrestored Victoria

All slant fordors are 160 series. I'm a bit confused by your wording.
Is the bottom line the Vic's used two different setups?
David Moore got that Vic from me. Until your pic I have never seen an original Vic
with the same brackets as the sedans (4-5 viewings). Any chance yours were replaced along the way?
It doesn't make much sense that Ford would have used two diff parts for the same function.
I do know that the referred to Vic is a May, indented firewall car.
Maybe beating a dead horse.....the poster just wants a set of visor brackets!!!

My Victoria has the same original brackets that are in Bill Cilker's car.

I am sure Ford used different suppliers as they used lots of different suppliers in all the different areas of the Model A. From working in a Ford Garage in 1985 the F series pickups used over 20 different starter suppliers.
Often Ford would contract with a supplier and the supplier would do a bare bones bid to get the contract and then when Ford would reorder the supplier would come up to a price they could live with and Ford would drop them for another supplier with a better bid.
