I am looking at a 1922 coupe its a Canadian car the doors open from the rear not the front is this right for 1922 not sure if its a true 22 thanks mike
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.
My 1923 CANADIAN Coupe has Suicide Doors
Thanks for the correction. I was a year too early
well going back tomorrow I will get the engine number and see where it goes from there thanks for the info mike
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.
1923 coupe looks like this (1920 shown, not much difference):
