If the car has a cowl vent it isn't a 22. I believe the 23-25 T Coupes had doors that opened from the rear and had the cowl vent. The U.S. cars were that way.

Maybe the Canadian T's were different from the U.S. cars with the way the doors opened.

I thought that mid 1922 (Early '23 model year) was the year that the doors changed from front opening (suicide doors) to rear opening (standard doors). So if you have an early '22 it could have suicide doors and if it is late it could have standard doors.

Was that the time of the change?

The change was in mid-'23, so all 22' and '23 model year Coupes would have the hinges at the back edge of the doors. The '24 model year began earlier than most.

I don't know anything about Canadian cars, so if they're different with respect to these features, all bets are off.

The 1922 model year ran a month later than usual, through August rather than July. Here's an explanation of model years: http://dauntlessgeezer.com/DG90.html.

Steve -- Thanks for the correction. The '24 "Model Year" didn't begin any earlier than normal, but the '24 model cars began production before the '24 "model year." :-)

Every 22-23 coupe I've seen has suicide doors.
