you missed at least one. Monogram released the cabriolet from the original 60's 1930 coupe/cabriolet kit as a stand-alone kit. that is why the 30 coupe kit has no fender well pockets for the side mount spare tires anymore. they tooled up a new set of fenders when they split the kit in two.

I was wondering about Hubleys also. Didn't they offer a Model A Fordor Sedan as one of their metal A kits?

Given the number of body styles there are not nearly enough Model A kits out there….. Need a repp of 28/29 sedan, need 28/29 coupe, need a 30/31 Closed cab pick-up. I need a 31 slant windshield Town Sedan to build a model of my Model A. I could go on…..  :blink:  :lol:

That's a 1932Ford, Jon.  It's a Model B (4 cylinder) or Model V8 (flathead V8), not a Model A.

From what I just read the Model B was the 4 cylinder version and the Model 18 (Ford V8-8)  was the V8 version of the Model B

As far as I am concerned it is in the same grouping as the Model A . The Model 18 had a larger more powerful engine and longer wheelbase
