What year did the Model T Coupe doors change from hinges in the back to hinges on the front?

The MTFCA Encyclopedia says "...Coupe and Tudor Sedan in August 1923". I believe these are referred to as 1924 Models.

Well, if one reads closely in that link it states:

(The “high” radiator cars as well as the new Coupe and Tudor Sedan were 1924 models.)

Many books and magazines got this wrong many years ago. It is common to find coupes misidentified as wrong years. I have seen many '24/'25 coupes licensed as 1921 or earlier, a few as early as '17.
FINALLY! (At least until the next round of revisionism?) It has become widely accepted that the 1923 MODEL was the last of the T Ford coupes having the door hinges to the rear of the car's door. And although some were in fact built during CALENDAR year 1923 (rumor says a few may have been as early as June of '23?), they are truly considered 1924 MODEL Ts just as next years model today can usually be had by September, and sometimes even June.
