      You engine was stamped NOV 19th, 1930. Do you have full running boards shields? personally I would build the car as a Jan 31 car, you have a 2 month leeway in judging. This will allow you to use both the part styles. shields, grill etc.

        My slant windshield 1931 Town Sedan (non indented firewall) has the original engine and frame number from November 1930, so during the last year or so, when sales were slow, there was more lag time from when the engine was built and stamped, and when the car was built.

                Ford had dozens of ships leaving Dearborn via Edgewater and or Chester every day taking parts and cars, and trucks to the foreign countries. To find out just what those ships were, you will have to contact the Ford Archives and ask the question for someone to do the research for you to find out specificly those ships that went into Buenos Aires, the home of Argentina's assembly plant at the time, to see if there are any records pertaining to your question.

                  Possible build date
                  by BillEbob
                  Any of you experts know how soon after engine build (Dec 1930) would a 1931 Victoria have been assembled?

                  Trying to determine a build date for my 1931 Deluxe Tudor.
                  by Arcieri
                  Bought it in 1978 and drove it for a few summers than took it down to body and frame and boxed everything up.
                  Car then went into storage (in pieces) for about 30+ years. Restoring parts now as time allows.

                  Some details:
                  Frame number is A4515098. Engine probably built 3/31/1931
                  Indented firewall
                  Pretty much all the parts changes made by ford in May and June...

                  1931 Running boards
                  by Foxfire
                  I'm curious about the patent mark on the bottom of '31 running boards especially the Canadian patent date of 1928. How does that date relate in general to all Model A running boards? I don't know how patents allow for continual improvements and design changes to products from the patent date. Apparently it appears only on some '31 boards. Are these boards Canadian only and not authentically correct...

                  A Different Generator Band Date Stamp
                  by Tom Wesenberg
                  I've seen single and double date stamps on generator bands, and I've seen the letter upside down to the number, but today I came across a date stamp "J5" and "J6" stamped next to each other. This is a first for me.
