Looks more like a 1930-31 Model A Ford by the dashboard and gas tank in the cowl.

It's actually a 28-29 Model A Fordor body with a later steering wheel

The only thing I saw that I found interesting was the odd Canadian “FOUR WHEEL BRAKES” caution triangle on one of the rear fenders...

That is actually an item that Dodge Brothers used for their late 1920s cars.

I have also seen them on original Model As that came down from Canada, I had been told it was a requirement up there on cars with the 4 wheel brakes. I wonder if anyone else can comment on this???

Also used on the 28 Chevrolets.  Its the 1928 version of the late 80s ABS stickers on many car makes.  They could stop in a MUCH shorter distance than their predecesors with 2 wheel brakes. There were still many cars on the road with 2 wheel brakes at that time. I have a recast one I am going to use on my 28 project.  I would worry about an original being forcably ripped off at some event.
