You have a "fairly rare" car as many Fordoors got turned into Townsedans so there are not many stock Fordoors left.

But the Body looks nice and straight, dent free and solid. So, outside of the engine I think you have a winner. Don't forget to check over the brakes and front suspension.

Mike, rereading posts here. To answer one of you questions, yes, dorrs close very well . They are tight, no sag, and line up perfectly.
