Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Delivery truck doors
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tom Strickling on Monday, February 08, 2016 - 11:12 am:

I am looking at a 1924 "box truck" Fully enclosed two rear doors etc. My concern is that the hinges on the front doors cause the doors to swing forward. Any photos I find have the hinge to the rear edge of the door. How are you supposed to shut the forward swinging door once you are in your seat?? I am wondering if the doors were changed or added . I have only seen photos of the truck.

What are your experiences and thoughts on this???

Thanks as usual

Tom, confusing, are you talking about the front cab doors? And are the hinges by the windshield, or by the seat (normal open or suicide open).
I would suggest you grab the door while getting in, then shut it when you're sitting down. . .

What is a box truck?

Ford made two truck body styles. Both have front hinge doors. Aftermarket bodies could be in any configuration. Some companies took the front doors off for deliver trucks.
