Check Langs newest catalogue or their website.
These may be the parts you need. Page 153 in Catalouge.

Langs call then a dovetail assembly.

I have a 24 Coupe with the identical parts that Langs has listed. I always considered them door strikes.

Not the same thing. The door strike is what the latch catches on. The dovetail assembly is completely different. The 25 is a peculiar door in that it is the first all steel door and was lot more soundly built. I think Ford realized in 26 that they didn't need to be as tough or as strong as it was in 25. Even the hinges are peculiar to the 25 only. My only hope is to find someone with an old 25 closed car that is not being rebuilt. Thanks

The steel doors would make a difference. I had forgot that the later 25's had the steel doors instead of the wood doors. I have never seen the steel doors strikes so I wouldnt know.
Since that is the case I wonder if the listing in Langs catalouge is in error since it shows The Dovetail parts are for 24 thru 27?

I wonder about that.

Look in Snyders catalog or on line at Model A closed car dovetails and strikers it looks like they have one that will work.

Yes the all steel doors for 1925 were completely different than any other year. The dovetails however, were the same. I did re-use my old ones. They were badly worn, but ran a few weld beads on them and ground them smooth...works perfect. Thanks to all.
