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

an act or process of placing in groups.

a set or arrangement of persons or things in a group.

As in "a group of similar body styling"
While I am at it , I will add in my opinion the Model A other than the roof line look very similar

I also noted that many Model A hot rods use the model b style radiator housing

I did not say they were the same put feel free to post pictures and point out the differences

Yes "A group of similar styled Ford autos in the late 20's and early 30's"

I call it the "Early Ford Hot Rod Group"

This thread is about Model "A" Ford kits. A group that falls within these years 1928-1931, not to be confused with Fords that came after this.

The Model "B" ( four cylinder version of the model 18, by the way a term not used by Ford) built only one year 1932.

The model "C" ( another term not used by Ford) being of the year 1933.

Sorry no model "D" ;)
