I am new to this site, and I would like to thank all of you in advance for your time, thoughts, and assistance.

I have a 64 6 window.  It is in good shape and it is a blast to own and drive, but it is showing its age in some places.  The long-term vision that I have for it leans to the resto-mod side.  However, I'd like to do it in a way that tips its hat to the car's vintage.

One of the things that I really would like to do is to suicide the rear doors.  I am confident that it can be done, but I have not been able to find any pictures where someone had actually done it.  

I noticed that the mid 60s Caddy hearses have rear suicide doors.  Does anyone know whether the hinges and door architecture from the hearse can be placed into the 6 window Deville?  I know the hearse lacks the half B-pillar, but I would think that pose little problem.

The rear section of the back doors are not straight down, so that would make a large obstacle.  I have not seen any pics of it done, but that doesn't mean that it cant be done. With enough talen and skill most anything is possible.

You should check out modifiedcadillac.org.  somebody there has likely done it, and maybe you'll get some other ideas for future mods too, it was a very active forum when I used to check it.
