Best Replacement Door Shells to buy for a 66

I need to purchase some new door shells for my 66 coupe and would like to get some that fit properly. Anyone have some advice on where to purchase the best door shells from? Since I most likely will have to pay truck fright fee's I would rather not have to send back the door shells to whoever I buy them from.

Thanks in advance for any info / replies.

I replaced both doors on my 65 due to structural problems caused by rust. I got both of my doors from NPD (National Parts Depot). I have to say that both doors actually fit. I still had to do some body work on both doors to get the surface the way I wanted it but I expect that from most repro parts. If you end up ordering new doors, keep in mind that they take 5/16" bolts which is different from what you have now. Good Luck.

I'd check cj's pony parts, I'm pretty sure the one I bought from them a few months ago had free shipping!

Ahh...thanks a bunch about the bolt size. I forgot all about that! Also thanks for the info about the NPD door shells. I have purchased other sheet metal from them before and was happy with the results.

Thanks for the info on CJ's. I'm guessing the door looked good, have you had a chance to actually install it? Does it fit as well as the one you replaced? CJ's is by far the cheapest with free shipping, (aprox. 450 for both shipped!) But I would rather pay a little more if they don't hang right or if you needed to do a bunch of work on them.

I bought a pair myself the passengers side worked great, the driver side I had issues with. Unfortunately, I had bought the doors, when I first got the car a little over a year ago. I also had painted the interior of the door, so CJ's wouldnt take it back because it was over 30 days from purchase, and it had been painted, so I had to end up buying another one, the second one fit great. I have returned stuff to CJ's and they have been good about returns. I would recommend checking all the welds on the door skins, if you get one from them, the bad one I had, there had forgotten to weld the door skins and that allowed a sag I couldnt correct.
