23 center door rear window install

Post by wayfarer » Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:33 am

brought home my first Model T last Friday, a Canadian '23 center door. This weekend I want to start putzing with it in the garage. Adjusting the hand brake lever, flipping the steering wheel over the correct way... You know - fiddling and fretting over the new baby

I got all the glass, the interior moldings, etc, but none of it installed. First one I want to install since it should be straightforward - is the rear window. I have the new safety glass, and the wood garnish with screws, but no rubber or anything. Langs shows rear window rubber channel part number 8030. Is this the stuff I need ?

Cory,
I just finished replacing all glass in my '22 center door with safety glass. I used MAC's p/n A19003R for the rear window. The Lang's part is listed as 1923 to 1927. It is probably ok, but the "new" 2 door came out in 1923. The back window is a different shape, not oval like yours. But at 80" it will be long enough.

I installed mine with the seam at the top, and used a small bead of clear silicone around the window frame before pressing the glass into place.

Good to hear from a Colorado "neighbor"!

Your wood rear window hoop has screws? Mine had nails.

Quite possible the screws are incorrect. I have no idea. That’s just what came with it.

Cory,

Please post some photos of your rear window and parts. I have the oval "frame" but do not have anything more for our '20 center door.

Glad to see that your center door stayed in Colorado.

Good Luck,
Terry

pretty cool that there are a bunch of center doors around here !
I guess it makes sense, closed cars given our climate.

Everyone keeps saying how rare they are. There are about 6 in the MTFCA Mile High Chapter and another 3-4 that I know of in the Denver Metro area. Doesn't seem they are too rare, at least around Colorado.

I would love to see your window replacement photos.

My son is currently living in the Springs. He's a big fan of Model Ts and a real car nut.

Cheers,
