I have acquired some parts which I thought were for a Model T Coupelet but discovered that they are for a different car. They are similar to the Coupelet parts which hinge up to form channels for the door windows, and fold down to cover the windows when the glass is lowered. I'm sure these pieces serve the same function, but on some other car. Here's a pic:
The part in question is at the top; the Coupelet counterpart is on the bottom. Does anyone have an idea what car these might fit? I have the set of four in great condition, and I'm sure someone who is restoring such a car would love to have them.
Mike, are you preceding that with a backslash?
OK, I've done this before with no problem. I am typing in the backslash, but it disappears when I try to post.
Sorry, I was putting the backslash after image. (They say the memory is the first or second thing to go....)
Could they be from the padded, non-folding top 1917 coupelet or the 1918 flat, non-folding top coupelet? Both of these models had removable window pillars.

Just had another thought -
Could they be from the first version of the coupelet produced from November 1914 - February 1915?
Erik -- I too wondered whether it might be from a late '17-'18 Coupelet, so I checked with Fred Houston, who has one. He said the window channels on his '18 are just like the '15-early '17 ones. I'm pretty sure the early '15 Coupelets are the same as well.
There must have been another car which used a similar setup. Possibly it was a car for which Fisher made the bodies, since Fisher made the Coupelet bodies for Ford.
