Information Wanted for Model A Database

I am compiling a database of Model A Fords, based on the vehicle engine number. No hot rods please. It is based on the engine number simply because the frame number is usually not accessible.

Currently the database contains approximately 2,000 Model As. The database includes: the year of the vehicle; the engine number; the body style (i.e. 35-A or B, 40-A or B, 55-A or B, 76-A or B, 150-A or B, 190-A, 400-A, etc.); the body type (i.e. phaeton, roadster, sport coupe, tudor sedan, fordor sedan, pickup, station wagon, standard or deluxe model, etc.); the location of the spare, tire(s) (left, right, rear); the colors; and miscellaneous features (i.e. rumble seat, eyebrow fenders, 1931 indented firewall, etc.). For security reasons, the database does not include any personal information about the vehicles’ owner.

Wanted early light switch housing

I am looking for a very early AR light switch housing. It is the one that mounts on a bracket and stands off the end of the steering column. It is not the one that is held in place on the end of the column with a wire bale. If you have one of these earliest housing and will sell it please call or email me.

We  purchased this car in 1959 or 1960 when living in Grand Rapids, MI.  We did a full restoration on it, doing some modifications for safety and drivability.  The modifications included 16″ 1935 Ford wheels w /Firestone whitewalls, hydraulic brakes, red vinyl upholstery, headliner was white foam material from Oldsmobile sedans, radio in  rear deck w/hidden antenna on right rear, custom white vinyl top  insert, sealed beam headlights, rumble seat. Running  boards were white heavy-duty  rubber (diamond  pattern), w/step plates. 1932 Ford roll down glass.

The car was sold in  Parchment, MI (North of Kalamazoo, MI) in August of 1962.   We would like to know the present owners to be able to share the car’s history in more detail.
