1933 DODGE WITH STANDARD OPENING DOORS???

Recommended Posts

What is the deal with Standard Opening Doors on a 1933 Dodge 2 Door coup? I have pictures of one and the car doors open NON SUICIDE. 

 

was this a special mod the owner made 

or 

did they make certain years with standard opening doors/

The 1933 Dodge Brothers Model DO8 had standard door hinge points. There were 212 rumble seat coupes like that one built in 1933.

I saw this car at Hershey a few years ago and it filled my heart with much lust. Zeke

Were they using up surplus 32 bodies for this series.  That sedan really looks like my DL, minus the different bumpers.

From the cowl forward will be longer though, with the 8 cylinder engine? The 1930 DC-8 had that front hinge door configuration too, as did the DD-6. I wonder why they reverted to rear hinged front doors?
