is this a 490 Chevrolet door ?

Oregon Desert model 45

Recommended Posts

This door looks very similar to Chevrolet 490 door photos that I find online. It has a full bead around the door perimeter, it opens from the front (suicide opening), has hidden hinges at the rear, it is contoured at the forward edge where it meets the cowl. However, the latch handle does not match any photos I could find. The latch is stamped : JOS. N. SMITH & CO DETROIT PATENTED MAR 24 14 5052.

Does anyone familiar with early Chevrolet recognize this door ?
