I have a nice set of antique car doors, can you help me identify the make and model?
There is a tag on the door that says:
"Manufactured by Chrysler Corporation" 10-1969

I assume the 10-1969 implies the month and date manufactured. But it could just be an ID number.

A Description of the door.

There is a stiff triangle frame in front of the window when it is rolled up, with fold out triangle windows.
The outer door panels are a smooth rounded curve except for the very top 6 inches, where it is beveled in toward the car.
The door handle is below the bevel.
There is no frame around the window, there is a piece of metal glued to the rear of the window.
The door locking mechanism is a good 10 inches up from the rear of the door. A push button.
The Window roll up knob has a black ring for a handle.
There are 3 vertical ~15 inch decoration bars (one to the rear and two to the front) of the window knob.
No side rear view mirrors. No marks are left from them having been removed.

the Vehicle Number is WH23G0A152702
I've looked all around the door for clues.

The closest I can find so far is 1963 Chrysler some of which share most of these features.

I'm hoping some guru can tell me what kind of door this is.

street454 Thank you for identifying it! I've looked up pictures of the

1970 Coronet 2 door hardtop with a 318 2 bbl

Online and found it to match my door exactly in every way! Now I can sell them. There is a little bit of rust, I'm wondering how much they are worth. I see a guy selling a 1970 coronet 2 door hardtop for $30,000 USD. I'm thinking maybe $1000? *hope I suppose it will become more valuable with time.


Thanks again.

What the market will bear, my friend. Throw them on ebay or craigslist. Personally $1000. is a bit steep but that's me. I would have figured more in the $500. or so range.
