    32 coupe doors into 32 roadster...will they go??

    hi everyone

    just been thinking.....

    are the doors on a 32 ford roadster and a 32 coupe the same size width wise??

    reason im thinking this is planning for my project and what im going to do...thought it would be cool/different to put coupe doors into a roadster, and have convertible type roof the type that folds back, so that when the hoods up and raining with the coupe doors and obviously window glass in you wont get wet

    as all the roadsters iv seen have no top window, guess they never did but thought my idea would be a bit more practicle for british weather, though the look might put me off if it doesnt look so good

    thanks in advance

    charles

    In a nutshell...no...unless you cut the **** out of the roadster body.
    The coupe doors are totally different shape wise and length wise.
    I considered doing this too, as I prefer the accessability of a larger door but looking at the amount of work involved, it would be easier to take the roof off a coupe and make it a roadster!

    Ford kind of did that with the Model A Sports Coupe body styles .....they weren't / aren't the most popular body choice out there ...there are a couple of examples kicking about that look ok , but they don't really do it for me.....Ford dropped them for the Model B range and went with a Roadster styling with fixed screen and wind up windows ...The Cabriolet.



    As German says ......it's closer to a Coupe for body style , swaging etc....

    Up until a short while ago I would have agreed with Gary, until I saw this '32 Sport Coupe...
