They look like 17-25 open car style.

I would say they are 23-25. The two slotted holes that bolt to the running board were not until then. The MTFCA Ford Encyclopedia states "Same as earlier boards but drilled differently." I think that refers to these holes.
Also "Similar to prior style but patterned to fit wider hood clash strips when higher radiator appeared about June 1923. (Had hole for hood clip.)" Yours have 2 holes near where the front meets the frame and I believe that is what this refers to.
