    It looks very much like an early '31 Town Sedan to me. But then, I ain't da brightest bulb on da tree.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      I wonder if Wiz once owned it cause it has a starter solenoid :p:p That's a cool horn also

      Looks like a slant window

        The slant Town Sedan came out in 31, and this one doesn't have the indented firewall which came out a few months later.

          Ford specified that Briggs and Murray had to build the slant bodies to the exact same blueprints and the parts should be interchangeable.

            Both Briggs & Murray had arched windows in the Slant Windows. You can not uses this to identify the body builder.

              Thanks everyone, I have had this car since 1962, just now getting the itch to git her going. Motor still turns free.
              I have all the parts, front end has been under cover since I have owned it. Radiator is original still in my barn. I have another fire wall for it, like new, will submit some pics to make sure it is date specific.
              Thanks again.

                Always learning every day, today it was- both Briggs & Murray made the arched windows for '31. Thanks for the info.

                  Saved info i had

                  In 1930
                  Briggs had a square side window openings.


                  Murray had a curved top on the side window openings.

                  The 31 Slant Window were both built by Murray and Briggs so the parts were interchangeable. The slant windows, Murray and Briggs, have the curved top on the side window openings.

                  Some S/W differences of the two are Briggs used d-nuts on the fire wall where Murray used caged nuts. Briggs had a manufactures mark on the R/F cowl

                    Our SW had Murray stenciled on the front seat wood frame if that helps.
