These 1948 Chevrolet Panel Truck Doors were made up from all original Suburban and Panel Truck Door parts. I mounted the upper part of the clam shell Suburban doors and used the upper part of the Lower, or tailgate as well as the lower parts of the original barn doors and almost all the hardware, latches etc.

In moving a lot of things by splicing and dicing and making new mounting points for hinges, reconfiguring the release handles and hinges etc., this project was a complete success. By success, I mean that it looks like a factory configuration.

The advantage to this configuration is the increased visibility of the large back window, over the two small windows, while still maintaining the ease of access that the original barn doors had.
