56 Chevy 4 Door 2 Door Difference

I need to know the difference in length of a 2-doors door and a 4-doors door. How much longer is the door on a 2 door car? I am converting a 4-door 56 chevy into a 2-door and can't find the doors anywhere. I am looking at stretching out my 4-doors door to the appropriate length to match the 2-doors door.

Big difference, 2dr is 46 1/4" and the 4dr is 39 5/8" now I may be off an eighth inch (it was dark out), but that's what I measured on the 2 and 4 door in the yard. I measured at the mid point on each door. Now these are 55s, but they should be the same as a 56.......

Your right. The 2Dr. is bigger to allow entry into the rear seat. Someone one the Chevy site posted a picture sometime back of a 55 that was a 2 dr. on the left and 4 dr on the right side. I did a quick look, but couldn't find it again.
