What kind of wagon do you have? Chevy/Pontiac are the same and Cutlass/Buick are different than Chevy/Pontiac

If you can find a 4-dr Malibu sedan, the front doors are an exact exchange, the rear doors are the same except that the window frames are different. You can actually remove the window frame from your damaged door and use it on the 4-dr replacement. If I recall there are several spot welds and a few tack welds here and there. You can probably also use Pontiac Lemans and Bonneville doors as long as they're from a G-body. It's gonna be hit or miss looking for them at the junkyards. You can try checking out this site http://www.car-part.com/.

Yes, you're right. A German member had replaced one of his rear doors with a sedan door and swapped window frames. He did it successfully, too.
I had one of my old doors apart at one time. If you're careful and pay attention, you'll find all the spot and tack welds. It shouldn't be too difficult. Sometimes you'll find some of lower window frame eaten away from rust. Hopefully you won't have that problem down here in Florida.
