Sure will do for you. Give me a few days and i will get some going. We are trying to continue the research done in 1977 by Phil Ahlin on this car, At that time he was able to locate ONLY 36 owners of the car. It is without a doubt the second rarest passenger Model A Made.. Now lets find out how many are still out there.

Tom the "C" is the blind back Dlx fordor. There are no solid records of how many were done, I beleive DeAnglis book states 750 were made. The car was rare enough that in 1931 there was a club devoted to it alone.
But lets see what we can all find out.

Mark, Where is the 160c SIG Group ?? I don't see it listed under Community/Social Groups.

I thought I might share something with you guys- There's a 160C in the rust that's been sitting outside, in the snow all winter. Driving outbound on the Kennedy you could almost spit on it. I walk by it once a week on my 5 mile exercise marathon to downtown Park Ridge. Know about it?

I feel cheated, my 160 has too many windows. Maybe during resto I could cover the back two and convert from a B to a C Two less window moldings to woodgrain, what a bargain!

This brings up an interesting question. Are there any "faked" 160C's made from A or B's Plenty of other A styles that were standard got the Deluxe treatment on restoration.

Years ago I remember driving by one with a for sale sign on it. The guy I was with mentioned it was a rare Model A, this was years ago when all sedans were looked at as sedans. Times sure do change.
