Doors

Recommended Posts

This may have been asked but are the doors on a 4 door sedan the same as on a Goon? Just wondering.

The fronts are the same as the 4 door sedan, I think, but the rears are not. The difference on the rears is the top of the sash? The roofline is differently curved. I think the glass is also different length. Otherwise everything below the sill should be the same.

That makes sense, why didn't I think of that.

 

Again Thanks

I think that the fronts are different heights if I remember correctly.  Though, for the life of me I cannot remember which one is taller.

The window frame on front wagon doors are a fraction of an inch taller than front sedan doors.

So close that the doors will usually fit on either but it is noticeable where the front and back frames meet and looks funky if you use the wrong one. Probably won't seal water out either.

Thanks. I believe I have a set of doors from a 4 door I had way back that had been wrecked and was not sure if any would work on a Goon but you guys are getting me fixed up on the differences. Trying to figure what I can plan on reorganizing things at the building and make some room.

 

Thanks

If the door bodies are the same you could always swap window frames. I realize this means grinding and welding, but it's an option if your door body is messed up but the window frame is ok.

1/4" right"? So a 4 door front will fit a goon better than a goon front door will fit a four door.

The front doors will fit, BUT yes, there is that not quite ~~1/4in difference. 

 

Yes, the complete door shell itself is the same, the window/glass frames are slightly different, and yes a good body guy/welder could swap frames.

 

I would bet you could do the same with the rear door shells........swap out the frames...........??
