Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Centerdoor question

I met a guy who owns a '22 Centerdoor. He said the rear passenger left and right side windows are stationary. He said Ford did not intend the windows to be opened. I looked at the window garnish on each side. They are plain and have no slots for the pull strap.


I met another guy who has a '23 Centerdoor. The rear passenger side left and right windows do open with straps. Each window garnish has a slot and seemed to be original and not homemade.


I don't have any reference materials to determine authenticity. Does anyone know why there are 2 versions?

Jay, I have a '22 Centerdoor and the rear windows go down and have straps. The door and front windows have the locking tab channels. I believe '22 was the first year for that set up. Earlier cars had straps for all windows

My '22 Centerdoor also has the pull strap. Its either closed or full open, no in between.

Mine's a '19 w/straps and all the windows go down with only the door windows having 2 adjustments.

Someone may have made them solid to avoid chipping of the paint. On mine you push the bottom out over a flange which is part of the exterior window frame. That area tends to loose paint rather quickly from opening and closing the window.

My 22 sedan has straps for both rear windows. One works fine; the other is jammed (maybe the glass is too tall). I think that the method is to pull on the strap which lifts the glass off the horizontal channel (on the outside of the door) and then the glass moves inward and can go down. I will try to fix mine this winter.
