I ran across some information from the Benson Ford Archives that eludes to the early C-Cab doors not having the mounting holes on top for the curtains. Then a friend said he had heard someone tell of this also. My question is this. Has anyone seen these (would be early 1924) doors?

The engine in my C Cab dates it to August 4, 1924, so it is within 8 months of when they were introduced, and it has the holes in the top of the doors for the side curtains.

Maybe they realized very early after the C Cab introduction that the holes were forgotten?

I am in possession of our family's 1924 (Dec. '23) TT C-Cab Express purchased new by my Gramps in Seattle - it has the curtain rod holes also.

The early 24's had a lower roof than the later 24's. Since there was no provision for storing the curtains overhead, then where were they stowed?

I have a few photos of these 24's and also a factory one of the low style roofs. Here's one from an early 24.roof
