Default 30-31 Cowl Hinge Differences

Question for you guys. Is there any difference in the hinge locations on the closed cars? Coupe, Sedan or Pickup?

Is it safe to say a tudor sedan cowl will fit coupes ect?

Thank you!

I know the Coupes and Tudors cowl, doors, hinges, latches, glass are all the same. I think the Pickup used the same as well.

the 30-31 pick up`s used the same door as the 30-31 tudor. there for the hinges and locations are the same. so your answer is yes they are the same.

The top hinge is down 4" from the top of the door on the 2 door sedan and the truck. It is 3" down on the coupe (and sport coupe). I believe on the straight windshield 4 doors it is also down 3" but the bottoms are different.You can't easily use a coupe door on a 2 door/truck cowl or vice versa. You can possibly use a 4 door door on a coupe cowl as they are easier to find.
