65 front doors?

Are the front doors on a 4dr the same as on a 2dr?

My name is Mike Worrell living in southern Iowa my vairs are a 64 2dr convertible monza 900 with 110 motor 4 speed light yellow with blk interior. Then a few months ago I got a 65 2 Dr convertible monza 900 with 110 motor 4 speed
Also light yellow with blk interior. Not sure what gear ratio as of now I'll have a look and up date. I really like them both but really liking the 65. They really made a lot of changes in a 1 year difference ????

Nope on the door frame / size Sedans are shorter. Most hardware fits.

Thanks mat. I was asking trying to find out if the door shape is the same I was looking for some nos door edge trim for a 65 2dr and all I find is 4dr trims and I was going to go for the 4dr ones and just use the ones for the front do you think they would work?

Yes, the front pair will work, the shape of the door is the same, just a shorter length.

NOPE -- I just looked at the door trailing edge the trim goes on and it is different on a 66 two door vs. the front 66 four door trailing edge.

The door Edge shape between a two-door and four-door is not even close. If you could use the four door trim on a two-door all the two-door people would have bought all of that cheap four door trim years ago.

I can confirm they are totally different. 2 door is pretty straight up and down and 4 doors have 2 angles.

Sorry, Mr. Mike Worrell. They are certainly not the same!
