Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Model T or A parts ID
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Derek Kiefer - Mantorville, MN on Saturday, December 05, 2015 - 09:51 pm:

I got a few parts with a recent T purchase that I believe are Model A, but want to know for sure so I can find the right buyer for the parts I don't need.

doors for a fordoor



Trunk lid for coupe or roadster





Rear Bumper



Also got an upper cowl/gas tank that I believe is 30-31 A, but forgot to take pictures...

Any of this stuff have any value?
(full-disclosure, I am asking for the purpose of advertising and selling them to someone who can use them, and to recover some of my investment and garage space)

Derek, The doors look like they're the front doors for a T Fordor Sedan, but I'm not absolutely sure, On the back side of the doors just under the window, does it say BUDD in large letters? If so, then it's most likely for a T.

Rear bumper assembly definitely Model A. IIRC 1930/31

Trunk lid looks to be model A since the T trunk lid has a key impression rather than the circular impression that you have in your lid.
Not sure if it is a 28/29 or a 30/31 if there is even a difference.
The rear bumper is a 30/31 from the shape of the bumperettes if there is even such a word.

The doors look to be fordor late model T probably 26/27

The deck lid appears to be 28-29 by the location of the latch. The latch was moved inwards in 30-31 so the pawl wouldn't damage the paint. The rear bumper has the early pipe between the arms but has 30-31 bars.

I'm thinking that at some time I was told that the 26-7 Fordor doors were also used on A trucks. Could be either one - the deck panel looks just like the one on my 29 A as does the rear bumper

Thanks for the help guys, I have the parts on local CL now. :-)

The doors are basically just skins, the wood is completely gone from one, and missing quite a bit from the other.

It is the Tudor/Coupe 26-27 doors that were used on model A trucks. Far as I know, 26-27 Fordor doors are on their own.

-Derek-
Measurements on those door skins might help to identify correctly.

Derek, a shot of the inside of those doors may help also. Might help in determining what they AREN'T. Dave

Wood inside makes them pre 1926 doors - mine are all steel - so I'll guess they are 1923-25 but that is just a guess.

Mark, steel doors were used in '25 too. My '25 coupe has them. '24's were wood. Dave
