I could use that door for my Park-Row, but mine is hinged from the left side. Darn.

With the quote on the door "special rates to Birmingham" I doubt that's an actual funeral home.

And the door is for a 71-76 body style Superior, not an S&S.

Judging by the central fleur-de-lis emblem and the trim pattern seen on the inside of this door, I'd say that this is a back door from a Superior of the Seventies or Eighties. It's definately not from an S&S.

That is Superiors interior pattern and looks like the rear door on my 73 Superior.

I saw this door a few years ago at the Auto Fair in Charlotte NC. I took a picture, but didn't ask about price. I wouldn't have want to carry it around all day.

I knew it looked familiar, just had the wrong car in mine.
To bad its so far away, I could still use it.

Meh, I took a stab in the dark on the S&S claim. I'm still learning so thanks to all for the correction. So this door's been for sale for a few years now???
