32 Ford door hinge question w/pic



I've got a 32 that was converted to a cabriolet with suicide hidden hinges. I removed those and need stock type hinges.

The pic is of some repro generic "steel" hinges. I looked at original 32 5-window & tudor hinges and those cars use a top hinge mounted way up on the body, and I guess that's why the top hinge has less of an offset bend, compared to a real cabriolet hinge? I can't tell from this pic if all 4 are the same bend.

The cabriolet pics I have seen, have the upper hinge mounted just below the belt line, so, do you guys see any problem with adapting these generic hinges if I mount them close together just like the cabriolets were?

It looks like it would work, but maybe I am missing something? I don't have a close up pic of a real 32 cabriolet to see if the top hinge is bent the same as the bottom one.
