Default Ford Model A Dashboard Color

How do I figure out what color the dash board should be? My father has a 1932 Slant Windshield 4 door. Is it the same color as the doors/hood? Thank you.

Sounds like a late '31 Model A and there's a different forum on this site for the As. Slant windshield terminology is pretty much confined to the As as all of the '32 body types, including the trucks, had slanted windshields.

Of course Dave is correct about the use of the slant window terminology. When you said it was a 1932 I suggested you move it to this forum from the Model A forum where you made you initial post. Now you have added "Model A" to the description. My guess is that you are trying to say it has a 4 cylinder engine. The 4 cylinder engine was a Model B in 1932. I think it is time for a picture.
Sorry about all of the run-around.

It is possible that your 1932 slant windshield 4-door is a late 1931 Model A that was, due to slow sales at this point in the Depression, sold to the original buyer in 1932. Some states (and provinces?) had regulations that registered the vehicle for the year in which it was sold rather than the model year in which it was manufactured.

And there is the further fly in the ointment of Ford still producing real '31 Model As in the 1932 calendar year outside of North America.

You need to establish what vehicle you have. If it is a Model A, then the interior of the gas tank is painted the lower body color. Only on some deluxe models is the face of the gas tank rubbed out.
