Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Truck Door Identify
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By charles leddy on Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 01:10 pm:

I have acquired some Truck/car doors and was told maybe they were for a Model T truck and am trying to get a positive identify. They are 28 15/16 wide and 47 9/16" -46 5/8" tall back-front with the door latch toward the back of the window opening. Doors are fairly heavy and have a "screw Jack" type window actuator. They have the "Ford" logo on the latch so I am sure they are definatly Ford. I was needing some Model AA Ford truck doors but these are quite different. Any help on what these would be for??CleddyDoorsinsideWindow actuatoroutside door

They are not 25-6-7 TT doors

I dunno what they are, but John's right. Whatever they are, they're not TT doors.

They look like 25 - to about 29 GM doors (Oakland, Pontiac,Chevrolet,etc)

OOps was told by my friend who dabbles in such off- brand stuff they are closer to 30 - 35 because of the lack of wood.

They're the same size as my '24 Tudor doors but mine are wood framed.
These must be '25 Tudor being metal framed.

Why would Chevy, Pontiac, Oakland have Ford latches in them? That is a dead give away that they are Ford of some year.

They look like 25 coupe doors they could be 26/27sedan or coupe doors depending on on how wide they are

I have some 25 coupe doors which are all metal and they are more like 24-25" wide and these are close to 29" wide. They have a pretty fancy window actuator inside which are shot but still there. These doors are 2 1/2"-3" thick and had some remnants of fabric under some of the metal on the front inside.cleddy

There's nothing unique about Ford latches. They will fit a number of different doors and made by Stanley. They could have been sourced from a junk yard 50 years ago. I thought about using a pair on my tractor cab.

Those sure look a lot like my '25 coupe doors, but my window regulators are gear drive type, but have been replaced with what I think are '26-'27 style regulators, so I don't know what the original ones were. These do look wider than mine, maybe Tudor doors? Maybe Dave Sosnoski will chime in here, I'd bet he has a pretty good idea of what they are, or aren't. Dave

I had a chance to look at some Yard Art Model "T" 26-27 coup and 2 door sedan and both of them had doors like the 28-29 Double AA Ford truck.(Thinner on top in window area).
Then I compared these to the 25 steel Coupe doors I have and they are very similar except wider(24" versus 29") and both 2 1/2"-3" thick.
All of the Ford doors I have seen so far had gear type Window actuator so have no idea if the Screw type really go with the door??? I sure thought this would be a easy question but I guess it just to old to positively identify. I have time to keep looking so eventually there will be a positive match. Apparently they will not be worth much if no one can tell exactly what they are for.cleddy

If they are wider than a Coupe door, then they are probably a 1925 Tudor Sedan door. Those are the "B" style regulators and they were used on the 24-25 Tudor, Coupe and Fordor. The Coupe and Fordor doors are the same size while the Tudor is wider.

Dave S.
I appreciate the info. Apparently I have some doors from the short period after the 1925 wood frame doors and before they changed the design again for 26-27 Tudor sedans door sedan. For a car as popular as the Fords there sure was a lot of changes along the way. Now what to do with them??cleddy
