The American Graffiti Coupe is a 5 window and in '32 5 window coupes had doors that open normally. The 3 window coupes had "suicide doors" which are hinged at the rear.

Its actually not modified. What you see was just added to the flat surface that was already there. I'm only 5'6" so fitting in a deuce isn't that much of a problem for me.

Nothin to it. Here's a stock firewall for comparison.
