On my 1919 Center Door there are two small holes next to the lift straps on each window trim.
I have looked at 5 other Center Door none have these holes
Any thoughts on what they are for?
Possibly small anti-rattlers of some sort, either the roller type or the ones that have felt/rubber headed bolt that adjusts towards the glass causing it not rattle.
That would probably act as a window lock also, good idea !!!
I am curious as to where the gas tank is located on a center door? Is it still under the front seats as they are bucket seats?
Under the driver' seat.
Good call, Andy ! We have them on all our Centerdoor windows.
Our '19's gas tank is under the driver's seat.
Thank you Andy
I was thinking window lock but no point in that can't lock the doors
For those of you who have center doors, how difficult is it to get into and out of them? It looks pretty tough to do as I look at interior pictures, I am trying to visualize how both driver and front passenger would get in. I understand a young in shape person should have no difficulties, but how about an older person in less than perfect shape?
Willis I have a 1918 centerdoor and I am 5'9 and weigh 200 lbs,60 years old and not that good of shape.I leave the passenger seat up until I get in the driver seat,then the passenger and its no problem.5 adults fit well but everybody better like everybody.
My wife uses a walker to get around I've added a grab strap on the hinge side of the door and step stool to get up to the running board the front passenger seat folds forward out of the way and with some pushing she gets in and rides in the back.
There is a gap between the two front seats but she has not tried to negotiate that.
So on tours I'm driving Miss Daisy (Terrie)
We have a '19 and I'm a bit "vertically challenged" at 5'4" and 180 BUT I do have the original Ruckstell shifter in the center which makes it somewhat awkward to navigate to the front seats.
I remember some little telling a tale about a Center Door when he was a kid. The Father drove, the daughter sat behind the driver and the wife on the rear seat. The little boy found his way to the front seat. Now that would be a real backseat driver...
I leave the passenger seat flipped over and crawl in; not too bad. I am 6’3” and 210. I have ’26 touring with four doors; the front drivers door is not that easy to crawl into either. Best to get in from the passenger front. No Ruckstell in either car.
