Interchangeable Doors

Postby Gordon12 » Thu Sep 04, 2014 1:38 am

Hi guys, so I see a lot about door parts and locks and switches being interchangeable. But im curious if the entire door is. I have a 86 st161 coupe. With manual window doors. We'll there is an 88 st162 coupe with electric window doors at the junk yard. Any one know if they will swap directly out?

Should be able to. Manufacturers wouldnt tend to mass produce an item like a door with small customisations or differences unless there was something unique like the st185 widebody rear quarter panels.

They physically fit but the 185 doors are different internally from the other T18 doors.

Well doors definitely interchangeable. Got it on. Keeping my old door panels because they look better, with slight customization. Now on to swapping the harness.
