Based on 1928 body features, California Title Serial Number (A958339) and Body Stamp Manufacture Date on firewall (1/24/29) indicates that the car is an early 29 Production Number.
Both Numbers appear to be correct from what I can find through Ford References.

They are available thru a number of sources.
Inner rear wheel panels appear to be in good condition.
