Ken,

Do you need all the moldings or just a few?

Do you have the earlier style doors that are wood framed or the later ones that are steel framed? At the moment I cannot access my older computer that has my price list of parts information.

The posting at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/247524.html?1321848936 shows the wood framed door for 1924 and the steel framed door for 1925. But there would have been some overlap when both styles were used. I don't know if a late 1924 was produced with both styles or not. And of course over the years someone may have replace a door with one of the earlier or later doors than their car originally came with.

That same posting shows that the 1924-25 coupe door is mot as wide as the 1924-25 Tudor sedan door.

While Mark at Model T Haven may not have any now, if you ask him to keep an eye out for them, he may run across some at a later date.

Also, if they are very close to the 1926-27 ones, you might be able to purchase those -- they are available in reproduction and then shorten them or modify the as needed?

If you are only worried about breaking the glass if you drive it without the window trim, I suspect you can come up with some temporary trim (wood etc.) that can hold the window channel in place.

Thanks for the post Hap. I have a 24 with wood frame doors. i needed a lower molding for one side so i used a 26-27 , welded the holes redrilled it and punched countersink for the screws and looks as good as the original. if i could get someone to compare the 26-27 side and upper garnish to a 24 i could maybe modify them as well. thanks Ken
