Erwin made the following suggestion on my Morris Minor wheel thread (http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=469283), and I find myself liking the idea more and more: Thanks, Erwin. This raises a technical problem, however. On very many four-doors, including the four-door Minor, the length of vertical jamb on the C-pillar is much shorter than that on the B-pillar, so the upper and lower fulcra of the hinging have to be a lot closer together. This, together with the dog-legged shape of the rear doors placing their centre of gravity somewhat forwards of centre, means that the stress in the hinges and adjacent jambs is several times what it is in a conventional B-pillar situation. On the Minor I estimate at least six times the stress. Off the top of my head I can think of a solution that involves bolt-on rear stub axles and hubs off a front-drive hatchback, bolted vertically to pads on top of the rear wheel arches: obviously it'd need fitting and measuring and thinking-through and fabricating. But what of prior art? Has anyone any experience with suicided rear doors? And what about old customs from the Golden Age? I know the rear doors of four-doors were occasionally reversed. Any pics?
