Late last year (December 2012) I posted questions about side curtains for my '27 Touring. It was suggested that I contact the Ford archives to get the proper prints and measurements and have Elizabeth at Classtique make the curtains so they match my brown canvas top. I need to know how do I contact the Ford archives? Address? Phone? Name? And what do they need from me so I get the proper information. Any help will be appreciated.

To be clear, the Benson Ford Research Center is the "Ford archives" to which you refer.

Max,

Thank you for the information and request form.

How do I find out the part number for side curtains? Will just the year and model of the car be enough information for them? Did they have more then one style of side curtain for a '27 Touring?

Sorry for all the questions but I don't want to waste the time of the Benson Archive and not get the correct measurements that I need.

The drawings are usually sorted by factory number at the Benson Ford research center and the factory number is supposed to be in the spare parts catalog, but in my swedish 1926 spare parts catalog there are no factory numbers for top parts, only part numbers? (for most other parts there are both part and factory numbers)

Anyway, here are the part numbers in my catalog:
41100X Side curtain Right Front complete
41101X -"- Left -"- -"-
41102X -"- Right Middle -"-
41103X -"- Left -"- -"-
41104X -"- Right Rear -"-
41105X -"- Left -"- -"-

I got a set of prints for my '25 roadster a while back, and with the help of a few originals I was able to make a new set. A word of caution. No one makes the proper binding for around the windows, which is 5/8, so you will have to get it made. 3/4 just doesn't look right.
