Post Suicide doors

Folks,
I just bought my dream car...a '35 Chevy 2 door Sedan. I was expecting to get a junker to fix up but came across a pretty nice deal that is about 60% done for about the same price I would have paid for a grass hugger. The car I got has suicide doors and from all the ppictures I have seen, the '35 did not come that way. So, I think the previous owner switched them out. They open and shut OK, but will only open about 12" and then lock up. I think maybe the hinges are too short to open backwards. I can't decide if to make the hinges longer...which may not help or convert back to the original opening. Any ideas.
