Body make unknown - You tell me? This is the same car that you can find on Big Al's List website under "Past Featured Cars" on the home page. This car was the "Featured" Car on January of 2005. If you can recognize what this car really is, please write to Big Al and he will pass it on to us! It has embossed visor and cowl, dual cowl vents, 2 hinges per door. It originally had dual longitudinal front leaf springs and square gauges. The body is 6" wider and the doors are 6" longer than a Model A Ford.

Thanks to the Fishers, Alby and friends for help when we needed it.
