I have a 1927 Fordor and have extra doors. I want to find out if the 27 doors will fit any other vehicles. Will they fit a Tudor, Model A Pickup or earlier Fordor T's ? Thanks for your help.

Since the Fordor body is the same from late 1923-27 except for a cowl change beginning in 1926, the doors will be interchangeable between them. These doors will not fit a Model A pickup, although '26-27 Coupe doors will. Maybe '26-27 Tudor doors, too. I can't recall if any of the Fordor's doors were steel-framed or built around wood. Once the interior panels are in place, though, it probably woouldn't matter much.
I guess the answer is that your doors are pretty well limited to Model T Fordors.

Fordor doors will only fit fordors (unless you're building an altered wheelbase T and then the front seat and legroom is going to be tight.) 28-29 A enclosed cab pickup, 26-27 coupe and tudor doors will interchange.

Yes, Terry. I should have limited my Model A closed cab pickup truck statement to 1928-29. 1930-31 were different.

The 23-24 Fordor used the wood framed doors. The 25-27 Fordor used the all steel door. The later door will fit all Fordors, but is correct for 25-27.

The wood framed doors on the 24 Coupe I believe are the same size as the Fordor, but they are constructed differently. The 25 Coupe used the same all steel door as the 25-27 Fordor.

So they will fit the 23-27 Fordor, and the 24-25 Coupe. They are correct for the 25-27 Fordor, and the 25 Coupe.
