There is a roadster in California that has a touring cowl and doors (shorter) with a roadster rear section. They slid the body forward to sorta match up to the doors and did a filler plate behind the trunk to hide the gap. Doors are curved different up and down considerably but they made it work. Looks a bit different but it is a running driving car!

That cowl will of course fit that coupe chassis you showed.

Rounded bottom doors and the lack of embossing in the firewall scream 1922.  Roadster doors are the same 1915-1922.  I have not seen a 1923 roadster door with an outside handle.

Bob, this is a '23, note door handle. All '23 open cars had outside door handles.
