Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: Part and information needed - Door striker plate
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Douglas Dachenbach on Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 11:55 am:

Part needed: I have a 1924 Coupe with a missing door striker plate. Does anyone have a source for these? Does anyone know what years and models used this plate? I know of a late 23 Fordor that uses the same plate. It appears to be only on closed cabs but I don't know what years. Does anyone have a part # for it? Doug D.Plate image

Price list of body Parts lists:
17276AX Plate (door lock striker) 1924-25
17490X Plate (door lock striker) 1924-25

I don't know why there are 2 numbers. I have only seen the type you show. They are the same for the coupe and Tudor pieces I have seen. Possibly the steel doors and the wood framed doors were different somehow. I don't know of a source but there should be some used ones available.

You might try Model T Haven in Iola, KS.

The early 23 low cowl Fordor Sedan used a different plate than that. It was also used on the Suicide door Coupes and the Centerdoor Sedans. It looks similar but is cast iron instead of a stamping. The dimensions are different so they are not interchangeable.

Sometime during the 1923 Fordor production they changed to this style. It was used on the late 23 - 24 Fordor and the 24 Coupe with the wood framed doors. When they changed to the all steel door they also changed the strike plate to a different style - similar to the 26-27 ones but different again.

Nobody make them - you will have to locate used originals.

Rich where did you find the #? I've done a Google search on those numbers and only get your posting. I've been looking online for several days. I may try casting some myself. Thinks guys.

Thanks again Guys. One of you has offered to send one from his stash of used parts. Model T'ers are the best. On my second tour, I broke a gas line and in 5 minutes they had it patched with a piece of rubber hose and some wire and I was back on the road again. You guys can fix anything with baling wire and duck tape. Hey Keith, I tried T Haven and they didn't have it either. Thanks again everyone. Doug

From a 24 coupe.
I need to find another one too.

The picture is pretty blurred but it looks a lot like a part I saw on Snyders part # A-80085/87

Take a look. It is for a 28/29 closed cab truck door.

Kirk,

That is not a 24 Coupe, it's a 1925.

The piece Douglas has shown was used on the 26-27 Coupe & Tudor and 28-29 Model A pickup. The difference between that and the 25 plate is that the 25 plate is one piece where the 26-27 plate is two pieces and is adjustable.

Dave
Thanks for the Clarification. I am in the process of assembling a 24/25? coupe. By me posting that picture I am able to learn.

Did all 1924 model year coupes have wood doors?

Thanks

Kirk,

Yes - the steel doors came out very early in the 1925 model year.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm helping several people who are putting together 24-25 Coupes.

Dave S.

Thanks Dave.
I am going to have some seat wood frame questions.
Doug, sorry for the thread drift.
