Ok here's one I think may trip you guys up a little (I hope so anyways). A 55, 56, and 57 Chevy 2 door sedan and wagon all take the same front door, 55 and 57 2 door hard top and convertible use the same front door. Why can't the 55 and 57 2 door hard top door be used on the 56?

It's funny with the popularity of those tri fives in my 35 years in this business I have only worked on one. Just one 57 Two door hardtop has ever been in my shop or in my stall at any shop I have ever worked at, I think that is kinda odd. The boss has a 55 Two door at the shop now he thinks he is going to get to but unfortunately he has so many projects I don't think he will ever get it done.

With that being said, I never knew all three doors would ever interchange!

Because the paint won't match?

LOL, I just forgot, I HAVE worked on more than that one tri-five, the 56 I have parked in my living room! But still don't have a clue as to why these doors wouldn't interchange.

That's a cool idea. Just so happens I have that exact piece from the 55 I'm working on now. I may be stealing someone's idea soon lol

It isn't something to do with the moulding holes is it? 55 and 57 look like they may use the same holes while 56 if it's a Belair has the two mouldings, but if it isn't a Belair it looks like it would maybe use the same holes as the 55 and 57. But there are non-Belair two door hard tops I assume so that can't be it right?

Yeah, I love that thing. Almost sold it once years ago, sure am glad I didn't.

Not the molding holes. Most repro doors and skins don't have any moldin holes so those could be drilled to match the trim level of each car. The difference was with the original doors and the repro doors are the same way. 56 2 door hard top takes a different door for one reason only.

I figured it out but cheated so I will let it lay for a while for someone else to try. Damn that is an interesting little quirk.

The 56's key hole is in a different position then 55 and 57 because of the moldings.
