Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Foredoor 12 Experts?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Scott Stier Jr. on Friday, September 22, 2017 - 11:48 am:

Hello Forum Members,

We are now the caretakers of this '12, the body numbers are mostly hidden under the upholstery, which we are conditioning to be flexible enough to peel back and read the first digits. It looks to begin with either an 'E' or and 'F'. I picked up this set of 'B' foredoors and they fit okay. I originally purchased them to go on my Wilson (inside door handle touring) body, but they dd not fit the Wilson as well. our questions are: are there drawings for the pass side front door latch and the rear brackets for the drivers side?

Thank you!
Scott

Scott:
If serial number starts with F then body is a Fisher...doors are definitely by Beaudette. Amazing the doors fit as good as they do.
Regards,
Scott

I'm confused . . . isn'tthat a "B" prefixing the number in the photo shown ? Wouldn't that be a Beaudette body ?

Rich:

I think that is the bottom of the foredoors They often had the body number there too. Probably to keep the doors together that matched a given body. Doors and bodies ultimately had "matching numbers" and I have seen bodies where the rear door hinges were different side to side in height by 1/2" or more.
