I didnt even know they crafted Aluminum back in those days. Interesting set of doors: Interesting Aluminum Doors
NOT Ford, however Ford did offer complete aluminum bodies as early as 1909. Based on the octigon shaped door handle escutchon I think the doors may be from a mid 1920's Essex.
Did you know, Franklin bodies were all aluminum until 1929.
Not sure if these are Franklin but I bet the folks at the HH Franklin Club could tell you. http://www.franklincar.org/
Now I'll go way out on the Franklin limb... R. H. Long made bodies for Franklin for a very short time nad then went onto making the Bay State. I had a Bay State 4-door sedan and sold it about 12-14 years ago but it had simmilar door pull handles and trim as the door in your picture. The car I had was ROUGH, and it sold to a gentleman from Oconomowoc WI. Maybe someone here can point you his way for an answer. If they are Bay State, that is the only closed car I ever knew of in existance and the only other car i ever found was a roadster in Maine.
