    They got a new part number for S2, so Lancia didn't simply use the identical part. But I could't point out the differences.
    My experience is that without adaption, you can't even expect to swap one S2 door for another.

    There are different locks on early doors, which correspond to different receivers on the doors. It's not as simple as replacing them because the holes on the doors and body shell don't line up.
    The chrome receiver on early cars have only 3 bolt holes in comparison to 4 on the non chromed items on later cars.

    I fitted S1 alloy doors 12 years ago to my S2 1600 HF (4 bolt receiver). Cant remember if I swopped the door locks over but it was no big deal. As I was building the car for the track/and rally I was not bothered by ultimate fit but I was pleased with the final result and they still open and shut like they should 12 years on.

    Re: fulvia doors

    Theoretically, the only significant difference between S1 and S2 doors is the latching, which can be modified. As a practical matter, the aluminum stamping technology of the time meant that S1 alloy doors had more dimensional variance, and required some fettling at the factory. So it's possible that any particular set of alloy doors may require similar adjustment when fitted to any other particular chassis -- either S1 or S2. But none of this is in any way insurmountable.

    Slightly off subject...

    I notice that recently there are new coupe door cards on the market.
    See pic.

    Click image for larger version.

    Has anyone seen or bought a set of these? Wondering about the quality/fit etc.

    Do they have the holes in the backing boards for the mounting clips?

    thanks,
