  • Free coupe door shell

    if anyone wants a free, pretty decent looking except for one rust spot at the bottom and some bondo around the outside handle area 57-up pass side coupe door, let me know. Northern Virginia area. Had to buy it to get the door panel stainless and the price was right! I'll be stripping it tomorrow so if I find any more trouble spots I'll post back. Also will have regulator, window, etc. (assuming they are good, window is rolled down) that I don't have a use for.

    Just stripped it, bottom edge where skin is folded over needs to be replaced, rest of door near pristine. Bondo is not hiding a dent, I broke some of it off, not sure why it is there? just a thick skim coat. Price still free. please take this so I don't have the guilt of hauling it off for scrap on my conscience. If you need anything at all door related besides the door panel stainless let me know. Vent window glass is no good, vent window frame is rusted chrome (but still works good, good for parts,) key lock looks sketchy, everything else actually looks usable. Regulator and window seem good. Again, this is a passenger side door for a 57-61 C-body. I think the seller told me it was a '57 but I don't know for sure.

        53-56 had the "scallop" in the door skin; 57-61 did not. Also 56-62 had ashtrays in the doors, although obviously if you wanted to use a '56 door on a '53-55 you'd be OK just using the earlier door panels.

          Would you by chance be coming to South Bend in May that you could bring it?

            Don't know yet. I may be out of the country. If you know someone near me that is going and is willing to bring it, I could make sure to get it to him...
