    Has the general shape of a 26-27, but no lip on the inner edge of the window opening. Maybe fordors didn't have this lip? And the coupes and tudors had steel inner panels. Otherwise I'd say is about 24-25 fordor.

    they made wood doors, then metal doors. This looks like a mid 20s wood door.

    I just measured my 26/27 T coupe door and it is all metal firstly and is 29" wide and roughly 48" tall at the center vertically.
    Your door has all the characteristics of a 26/27 door, but it is definitely not likely to fit a Coupe or Tudor of that year.
    It also seems to have a big glass area opening.
    Even the latch and sill trim looks much like a 26/27 door items.

    Maybe it was from a 4 door or a special coach build.
    I'd be keen to hear more from any others out there who may know more.

    If no luck post it on the Model T Forum.

    Looks like a front door off a 1923-25 Fordor. Note the fender clearance cut on the rear door. Bob

    I thought 23-25 would be wood on inside of doors?

    ^^^They do.
    This door has the making of the 27-27 door judging by the window hole. But not sure of what year this is or what it came off of.

    Your second door looks like the front passenger 1926-27 T Sedan door.
    Found this rear door on ebay...
