I do know one thing. With the longer doors, it would be easier to get in and out of. After all I am all of 5' 9"
If I had a pair of 2 door, doors, I'd change them out too.
I'll study on it

When I did my Dodge, I tried to find another door (all I had was the two rear doors) my plan was to cut through the middle of the doors and then add in a slice of another door. Never did find any, so I don't know how well it works, but you do have four to work with.

The rear tires and the wheel well behind the tire kills it, other then that it's cool. The only other thing I'm lost on, was the back of yours already cut out

Yeah, it has been that way for years. I guess someone decided to use it as a pickup
I've got another parts car I'll use for fixing all that.
I don't like where the rear tires are located on the one I used as an example either.
Mine is gonna be a full fendered car too.

Default A little progress

Got to spend a little time in the shop over the weekend.
Took the doors off.
Remove the dash.
I've got almost all of the wood removed.
The passenger side rocker was missing and the parts car rockers are both in a lot better shape than the one's on this ole gal.
The parts car B pillars are also better so I'll be using them too.
I used my new toy, the press brake, to make floorboard channels. I'll have to get pics of them tomorrow
I'll start getting the bracing in so I can take the body off the frame.
A couple of pics just to say I did

I intend to combine the back door and the back window with no separation between them.
I appreciate your input.
Am I missing something or does this look wrong ?
I hacked your photo and chopped a couple inches...
