    Here is a question I don't think anyone has run across yet,
    Do the doors off a 1960 Ford Starliner fit on a 61 starliner body?
    Yeah, I know, the body skin is different. but will the doors fit?

    I have always liked the rear of the 1961 Starliners, love the small fins and the round taillights, but I do not like the front end, conversely, I really like the front of the 1960 but am not really fond of the rear treatment. the transition point would be the doors. I think If I can find the parts I can piece together my idea of a 1960-1 Starliner
    In Matching photos the body "line" should match up between the fin and the door between the 2 years.
    thereby comes my question.... will the doors from a 1960 starliner fit the 1961 starliner body?

    i am open to discussion here.

    I have a 60 and a 61, the doors appear to be the same size? Meaning they should fit the opening but both the outer skin and the inner door frame are a different shape between the two years.

    61-62 doors are the same other than trim location. I do believe, as stated above, that 60-61 are completely different.

    are the hinges same? do you think a person could bolt the 60 door onto the 61?
