1964 Quarter panel replacements

Does all 1964  Rear quarter panels fit the same as far as length and wheelbase length on quarter panel ?? I looked at a 1964 coupe Deville it looks like the rear quarter roofline is not as wide at the rear as a Fleetwood witch rear door has 1/4 glass and a Deville the 1/4 glass is cut into the roof. would I still be able to use a quarter panel from a coupe Deville?Any help would be great before I put out more money.  Thanks in advanceSee More
