What are the dimensions and location of the piece of wood that goes inside below the rear qtr window on a 24/25 Coupe?
To Clarify, I am talking about the piece of wood that attaches in the indentation of the "B" pillar.
Would this piece I am looking for be called a window sill?
Kirk. Send a PM to Dave Sosnoski. I believe he is the authority here on 24-5 coupes.
Kirk: on my '25, it is 15" long by 3 1/16" high and 21/32" thick. Has a groove top and bottom 9/32" wide by 3/16" deep. There are rabbets on both ends 1/4" deep. The front rabbet is 1 5/8" in length, the back rabbet is 3/4".
Will you be at Larry's on Monday?
No out of town. Sent you a PM.
I have a drawing of that wood part if you still need it. Part #30 in drawing. It is from a set of plans from Ron Buckley. Let me know. email@example.com
Thanks Leon. I believe there are 2 pieces of wood in the 29 30 locations. An inside sill #?? and a body piece (29? 30?).
#30 and #31 are the inside window sills. #28 and #29 are the outside window sills. The picture shows the left side without the outside window sill, but shows the inside window sill #30. The right side shows the outside window sill #29. Here is a picture of the print for the inside window sill #30. Ford had other vendors making bodies and you will find different types of construction.
Thank you Leon for the explanation and print picture.
I highly recommended the plans from Ron Buckley. He still sells them and great guy as well.
Just be aware that Ron Buckley's plans are drawn off of a Canadian coupe. The construction is similar, but not the same and the dimensions are not necessarily the same. You can't just go by his plans - unless your restoring a Canadian coupe.
I'll take a look today and see if I have an original piece to measure.
By the way, the "inside window sills" are called the Quarter Window Garnish Board. The "outside window sills" are the Quarter Window Belt Rail.
The only piece I could find is a plywood replacement. It is approximately the same dimensions as Jahn posted. I would use his dimensions and then adjust to fit.
The plans Leon posted do not show the groove along the top and bottom edges.
What is the groove for?
Thank you very much Dave.
and Leon and Rich and Jahn.
Could the groove be for the upholstery trim piece?
