    very helpfull, could i assume then 23-25 doors will also be the same for all tudors in that year range
    also would coupe doors be the same across the same 23to 25 year models
    im trying to understand the changes henry made because im looking for sheet metal to buy and need to know what i can mix and still get a bolt together car

    the reason i was looking at building a 26-27 was because i read they were a little wider and i thought that might open up the engine compartment for wider motors and still get a full hood is that a reasonable assumption?

    Great work Anders.
    Other year doors I don't know well enough to advise you on.
    I can say be careful of 4 door stuff because I believe that can be different.
    Good 26/27 & 28/29 doors can cost decent money if you plan to find some.
    Then again owning a good pair of doors will make life easier and speed you progress up.

    Yes, that is correct.
    Give it a nice title that helps folks find you if they are into T's etc.

    That Tudor above is a 26-27, you can tell by the firewall. Keep in mind that roadster cowls and closed car cowls look nothing alike (beyond the firewall) so that might be what's throwing you off.

    James: You can recognize the 26-27 cars by the gentle curve on the bottom of the windshield. Older ones are flat. Chances are, when you find a body it will be the 26-27 variety because that's all I ever seem to find. Also, the earlier ones have a more square shape to the trunk.

  26. Bought an acreage last year here in Eastern South Dakota and found 2 model T frames in our wood line with an assortment of other antique farm tools and implements. (Wood line=metal scrap yard/dump for old time farmers) 1 frame was used as a wagon but has all original Ford running gear. Going to build a RPU out of the frame.
