Bing Bing Bing, we have a winna! The late '65 used the welded on studs to hold on the mouldings. Where as the early '65 used a hole in the door or quarter for the clip to pop into. When I converted my drivers door from Skylark to Gran Sport all I needed to do was weld up the small hole at each end for the lock in stud and grind off the studs across the middle. Where as using an early '65 door would have required welding up about a dozen 3/4 x 1/4" holes!

They were the same as the window moulding studs.



It's your floor.

Any ideas on the rear body panel? That was totally different, because of the tail lights.

MARTINSR This is fun, it's gotten your curiosity.

Yep, the quarter and the door will innerchange from early to late '65, they are identical in every way....outside of the mouldings that look identical early and late when on the car. You would need to remove the moulding to see the difference.

Let me put it this way, I have a late '65 Skylark door on my Gran Sport, I would have never wanted to use an early '65 door.

This one has me baffeled since some are rear view and some are front ,but you stated you can see it in ALL photos ,,

The only difference I can see is the raised ridge that the side molding sits on .but that is not mechanical it is cosmetic ,,and I cam see that without opening the door.

I know the two door, four door and hardtop, don't know about wagon. I had one and removed these parts but I don't remember if it was early or late '65.

Nope, I screwed up, all '65 Specials had the side mouldings like the Skylark. The '64 didn't but all '65's.

But there is another BIG difference, a whole body part that would have to be different Special to Skylark, this car was a Special. You can't see it in his picture but I'll throw that out just for fun. This is a weld in body part that was very different Special to Skylark/Gran Sport. You can see the part in the middle photo but you can't see the difference very easy. I can clearly see it but I know very well the difference.
