I have 32 Ford 3 Window that doesn't have safety door pins, I want to install them while the car is down for the winter, Carolina Customs has a nice selection. To bad I have to take out part of the door upholstery. Looks pretty straight forward but thought I'd ask someone who has done it first. Thanks Everyone

  • Steel or glass body ?
    Whose chassis ?
    I have built a few suicide door rods. If a quality steel reinforced glass body with a quality chassis....I never use pins.
    Example: Outlaw body & chassis. Downs, Wescott, Outlaw on a TCI -Total Cost Involved chassis = I never use them safety latches..
    Traded Rosina's '87 Corvette for a steel '34 Ford Victoria on a messaged Henry frame. First time out on a crowned country road...WAM !! Quarter panel creased...bummer.
    Our old faithful Downs Fiberglass '33 sedan delivery on a TCI chassis, 141,183 hot rod miles = no safety latches. Many interstates, curvy country roads, over the Blue Ridge Mountains many times, New York I-95,

  • Yes, I used some of that Hoffman Group stuff on my 37 Chevy, and was dissatisfied. I can't remember the names they do business as.

  • All of them including the cheap brands you have to take the panels off . Carolina Customs make about the best ones . As they are pretty easy to install as I have done a lot of them over the years e the best out there As they are about the best built . DO NOT USE THE HOFFMAN GROUP PRODUCTS LIKE AUTO LOC POOR QUALITY. Carolina Custom also make power ones which are good just a little more work putting in .

  • That waterfall grill in the 33 Plymouth makes it though.

  • Even more rare is a 32 Dodge 3Window! I've been driving mine for 43 years now.
    BUT.................It does not have suicide doors. Plymouth did.

  • 32 Ford 3-window. That's one you don't see too often. 33 Plymouth 3-window is even more rare.
