I know there was a door on here yesterday. Unable to locate today. Anyway I need a front passenger door. Good or bad, does not matter. Just need the majority of the inner skin, especially the latch area. I can fabricate the remainder if necessary.
I have a couple of extra drivers rear that are very nice to trade or sell if someone needs a door.
I also have a rear door that need identification. Fits the touring opening, latch area, and hinge location. The middle loop of the door hinge does not match the body hinge. The inside skin is different as well as the latch. The latch looks like a Model A open car hinge, but the door is definitely not Model A? The T hinges will bolt into the door perfectly. I think there is a rookie problem downloading some photos?
A mystery.27 rear tourning door?\

Sometime during production 1926-1927, the doors were changed. They will fit either year car, but the hardware must be that which fits the individual door. After the upholstery panel is installed, you can only tell the difference by counting the screws. One type has two screws on the door latch which face toward the striker plate and the other has only one screw in that position, but either door works fine.

Thanks Norman. I suspected that, but wanted someone with more knowledge than I to confirm.
I like the fact that there is access to the inside nuts.

Gary,
You are referring to the one I put up for sale. It is a early 26 door, and no there is no access to the nuts
