When the T,s were made the people were short and all the houses had tall ceilings. Now we have tall people and short buildings. Go figure.

It is lower than your TT.

From the August 1, 1920 Ford Service Bulletin,

Touring Height 7'
Runabout Height 6' 9"
Sedan Height 6' 9"
Coupe Height 6' 9"

I am not sure if the1924 coupe was still the same height as the 1920.

Mine measures 76". It has '26-'27 wire wheels, don't know if there is a height difference from wood wheels. My standard roll up garage door is 84".

You only lose about 1/2 inch with 21 inch wheels.

Height can vary over two inches depending on condition of springs, shackles, and specific tire sizes and conditions. Most 30X3.5 tires are oversize and actually 31X4 size. An under-size 30X3.5 nearly bald can be almost two inches overall height difference from a new oversize tire (tire overall height divided by two for a car height difference of one inch for tires alone). Sagging or overly arched springs alone can make a full inch difference.
Additionally, some accessory shock absorbers can raise the car an inch.
So you may need to measure the specific car if it is a close fit.

All that said. My '24 coupe is also 76 inches tall with 30X3.5 oversize tires and no shock absorbers.
Good luck!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I went down to the basement garage and measured my late '23 coupe, an early '24, and it is around 76 to 77 inches tall. The car is all stock.

Put new 21" tires on the front, and 30X5's (20") on the rear of my Dad's '26 TT. Presented an overall height of 7'4" (88") at the rear of the cab. OH door height? (Better have the '8-footer'!)
