Default 1932 Vicky Door vs Tudor Door Anyone Clear This Up

So I bought a very nice door the other day (like 95% rust free doesnt need a bottom patch and 100% complete aside from garnish moulding. I bought it for an extra for my Tudor in case something happened and long story short I had a guy bug me to death trying to buy it at the swap meet and I told him I didnt want to sell it. Anyway he said it was a Victoria door and not a Tudor door and wouldnt work for me. Anyway for what I bought it for it doesnt bother me to keep it but just wondering if its Vicky or Tudor. My Tudor isnt available at the moment and this is bugging the crap out of me. How can I tell what it is? Are there any dead giveaways etc? Thanks for your help guys. I kinda hope its a Vicky door because I would love to trade it on a good 1934 3 Window passenger door for my dad after all hes done for me.

I thought that the Vicky doors were about an inch shorter but that may not be right.

I strongly believe that is a tudor sedan door, not a vicky.

Big Al is correct, height difference. I agree with Big Deuce that that is a tudor door.

In addition to the height difference victoria vs tudor, the top of the window opening is more arched and is not parallel to the top of the door on the inside, and the door latch and handle mount is 1" forward.

When I built my Vicky I used a Vicky back section, 4 door cowl and a mint pair of 2 door doors and 2 door garnish moldings that my body man stitched all together and no one ever detected that it was a Frankenstein body as it looked correct. I remember he had to modify the cowl, doors and moldings to fit. It's still out there and looks good as when it was built.
