    Just to confirm this I have a 1952 2dr deluxe sedan which needed a door.

    I got one from a fellow who has a 1952 2dr coupe. He had bought the door for his coupe but when he went to put it on it would not fit. The top rear corner slopes down a lot more than the door on a sedan. The door fit my sedan just fine.

    Hello Tom, you are correct. The front doors on a 4 Door Sedan are very similar to the front doors of Sedan Delivery but are not interchangeable due to the squared corner at the top back of the 4 Door Sedan front door, where the Sedan Delivery has a rounded corner at top back of the front door. And No, the front doors are not interchangeable between a Coupe and 2 Door Sedan in the 1949-1952 year span.

    Drew,

    Delivery – Yes, I’m aware of that – kinda’. Don’t the doors on the 4 doors have a square edge on the upper outer corner and the delivery is rounded?

    Coupe and 2 door sedans – for SURE the doors are not interchangeable?

    Hello, the front doors for a 1951 Sedan Delivery are modeled after the front doors of 4 door Sedans, not the coupes or two door sedans.

    Drew,

    I thought the doors from a coupe and 2 door sedan were the same. I know the 4 door sedan and the hardtop are different but the from the B pillar forward on the coupe and sedan I thought were the same? Where’s the difference? Height or length? or both?

    Speaking of doors, which doors fit a sedan 51 delivery? Are they in a league of their own?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Hello Larry, the doors are not the same and do not interchange between a 2 Door Sedan and a Coupe. Thanks for the question.
