Re: about doctors door cars.
I don't know anything about this car, however, I have a 1930 5 window coupe that actually has a small door under the rear side glass just behind the side door and in front of the rear fender that is about 12" by 7" with a curve that matches the rear fender part way down the little door. I was told you could put golf clubs behind the front seat from the outside thru this door.
Don't tell me I don't have this, I can send anyone pictures.
We are going to customize this car because it is in such bad shape and cover the door unless someone tells me it is worth a lot of money.
What make of car is it? It sure sounds like a door for golf clubs. Why cover it, it would make a neat conversation starter at car shows, plus you could put tools or spare parts in it if you don't want to haul golf clubs!
If you could post a couple of pictures here on the forum that would be great, their file size needs to be under 250K (under 245K to be safe) each. Here is an easy way to resize picturs if their current file size is too big:
It is a ford 5 window 1930. The car is just panels. Is has no floor pans. My nephew Wants to customize it like the one on American graffiti and has done just a little work down that line.
I will go over and get pictures and post.
Sounds like a cool car Wayne. There were several upper end cars that had the golf club door as you describe. I didn't know Ford made one too. Pictures would be great!
Ford didn't, someone added them after the fact. Guess I missed your first post but must have been a question about a Dr Coupe.
If you have questions about rods this might be a better fit;
If it's questions about Model A's relating to stock 4 cylinder cars, this is a good site(Ryan want to keep content to more stock or original 4 banger type cars):
I am not posting this to chase you off just suggesting a better fit to what you are working on.
Lets just call it an Off Topic post for now until we see how it pans out.
Sounds interesting for now and we could all learn something here...
Golf club door on passenger side
I will try to get photos today and post. If this doctors door isn't original equipment on this 1930ford coupe it was a very professional job.
I know you on here have a lot of knowledge and that's why I am hoping someone could give me more info on this. I can also post the vin # if that's allow. Thanks guys
If you have trouble posting the pics here, try the model T Ford page of Facebook.https://www.facebook.com/groups/Fordmodelt/
I had a '28 Oldsmobile coupe that had the golf club door in the same place (right side in front of the rear fender.

Perspective. The feature is called a golf locker. Announced in 1922, probable first by Packard for their Light 6 Coupes. (October 19, 1922). By 1923 others that offers cars for the country club set had this feature.
Thanks for the info guys, I learned a lot. Take care
