its registered as a 31. I'm curious about the trunk, it sounds like the trunk is more popular then the rumble seat or is it the other way around

The splash aprons are 31 the radiator shell in a '30. While rumble seats are more popular thus more common. It seems that a lot of people don't use them as seats and are changing back to trunk for storage.

I changed the trunk to a rumble seat on my '32 roadster. I didn't use the rumble seat much and missed the trunk. If I had it to do over I would leave it a trunk.

You might want to go to the swap meet down the hill in Devore Sunday.

My daughter has my late '30 coupe & it has the 1-piece splash aprons which are correct for the car.

That depends on the sale price, no? If it was say $100, knowledge of the real value is irrelevant!

Save the trunk. You'll be glad you did. Rumbles are dangerous in today's traffic, and seat belts are hard to install safely and aren't much help in any case. I would convert mine back to a trunk, but removing the cushions has given me almost as much space.

Nice looking A.

Don't fret over what you paid besides that lady, being a widow, probably needs a few extra bucks so you helped her out at the same time that you got a nice Model A. Put that behind you and don't look back.

Now, time to clean it up, tweak it a bit, and have fun. Buy some books, maybe join a local Model A chapter if one is near you.

Also, from what I have been reading, the HAMB is a lot nastier place to post on over there seems like people are attacking each other a lot more than here. Stick with these guys!
