Wagon to Coupe interchangable parts?
« on: May 08, 2013, 06:45:24 PM »
Does anyone know what parts are interchangable between the wagons and the coupes of the same year? Such as:
Doorskins, grills, seats, etc.

Door skins can be interchanged, but the glass frame cannot, it is of a different shape at the upper corner at the 90 degree area. This CAN be remove, but requires cutting out the welds and welding the correct frame into place.

Wagon doors are "to tall" (more straight) at the back corner of the window frame, coupe are shorter (curved to the dome of the roof).
