    I won't be any help to you. I just wanted to say doors are not an easy thing to swap out. Yes, the windshield, roof, and hinges would all match up, but the sheet metal between the GM divisions were different. Some sides had creases, some didn't, etc.

    According to the link below, the Buick and Olds doors interchange. I know the 4 door models interchange (I tried it once on my 81 Cutlass 4 door, I got a door from an 84 Regal 4-door). As an FYI, 78-88 4 doors never got a substantial sheet metal change. A hood from an 80 Cutlass 4 door fit my 81 Cutlass 4 door w/o problem.

    I am also pretty sure that the 81-88 Cutlass and Regal 2 dr. Doors do interchance. I know Monte Carlo do not because of the unique body lines.

    See if the place you are getting them from can email you some pictures, so you can make sure they look the same. The only difference would be in the outer door skin.

    Yes, 81-88 Regal and Cutlass doors are identical. Grand Prix and Monte Carlo doors are unique though.
