I have a 1923 coupe with suicide doors. When I got the car all the windows were removed and parts in a pile. I'm in the process of new glass and interior install. What I need to know is what goes where and if I have all the parts. I guess there are felt tracks for windows to slide up and down on? Does any one have a break down pic? Know were I can get one? Or have pics of them installing? I know mine has the metal garnish molding and not the wood ones.
Sid, I looked at three coupes. The 1924 with non-suicide doors has roll-up glass (Roll up handle mounted inside below the bottom of the window)
The 1919/20 has pull up straps.
The third car a 1922/23? has a rod that hooks in the wood trim of the window. You unhook and push window down. The window seems to be spring loaded as it almost goes up on its own. I do not think this is original as it is the only one I have ever seen like that?????
Hopefully someone has some pictures showing the correct window parts. I would have expected a metal strip up the side with a rod and handle that hooks in the slots on the metal strip.
Would the window parts or any pictures be in a ford body parts book from that timeline?
My windows have the springs mounted on the bottom. One set has the strap setup and the other a piece of metal with notches in it with a handle that goes into the notches. We laid the parts out today and know for sure the garnish molding around rear window is missing. We think there are also some pieces missing on the side windows. If anyone might have these please let me know or who I could call.
Sid, I made one more attempt to help you. I have a 1923 Center Door project with the type of window hardware you have, but most of it is also missing and I did not find enough to do a picture.
Sorry, maybe someone will see this and post some helpful pictures.
Thanks Willie. Hope someone see this post. Still need garnish moldings around rear window.
