Default 1952 to 1954 parts compatibility?

Does anyone know if a rear hatch from a 1954 Ford wagon will fit on a 1952 Ranch Wagon.

I was hoping someone could answer this.

This info (parts info) was removed from the 49/59 MPC. You would have to find a period correct BODY PARTS CATALOG or maybe an early HOLLANDERS to see if the same (or someone with that knowledge).

By the appearance and body style of '52 thru '54 Ford wagons, I would assume the rear hatches are interchangeable (top hatch). One difference may be the amount of stainless trim on it. A Country Sedan or Country Squire will have extra stainless trim around the rear window, where as a base Ranch Wagon would just have a narrow stainless strip across the belt line.

Late for the part but they are identical.

I picked up a extra one years ago when I was building my wagon and everything is the same. HRP
