I see that the rear doors had them but did the front? If so photo and where can they be gotten? I see the rears listed.

By definition, Nope.

The body panel side just wraps up around the wood sill and forms the front door opening frame. There isn't a separate part screwed to the wood sill for make a 'step plate'.

Great and thank you. :-) There are two screws with nothing attached sticking up in my sill in the area where it might have gone so was wondering.

Look at the above photo. Notice how the bottom of the door scrapes the body. Does that answer your question?

There could still have been a metal cover over the wood sill that could have gone under the lip. That's why the question. I have not looked nor remember seeing how the ones for the back doors are installed.

Mark

There is none, just the outer body metal.


Wood framing.


This view shows that body panel with door opening, the metal is pulled away in this shot, but when fitted back to the tapered sill, the narrow metal edge forms the only transom for the door opening.

Larry

I fixed that drag of the door on the body metal sill! The door was sagging.




Mark

The rear doors on the touring do have metal 'sill caps'...they mount with small flat head nails into the wood of the body sill.
