The '26 Roadster didn't have a driver's door (except in Canada), and all '27s did.

That I didn't know, but that isn't what I am after. The doors will interchange, yet they have one big difference.

OK, The addition of the driver's door may have been earlier than '27, That was my un-googled guess.

Here is my googled guess:

The hole in the top of the door (for the side curtains?) was just a plain hole in '26. Early '27s had a zinc escutcheon around the hole, and late '27s had an escutcheon-like boss stamped into the door.

Also,
the access holes in the inner door panel were enlarged for '27.

One more guess...

In '27, the door hinge was mounted with machine screws and nut plates instead of wood screws.

You got it Joe, I was looking for the access holes inside.

It's your floor.

OK, Next question.

How many Mustang GT Convertibles did Ford export to Canada between 1982 and 1983?

There's only 10 provinces so I'll say 9.

Close enough. The answer is 8. Only 8 of the 1,001 Mustang GT convertibles built were exported to Canada.

The floor is yours 61bone.

In 1957, The Nevada Timing Association ran drags at the Douglas-Tahoe airport, outside of Reno. What was unusual about the races as compared to other dragstrips.
