Suicide Doors on '41 GMC

11/2/2016

In this Tech Tip, John talks about what can be expected when converting to suicide doors.

“I am currently building a hot rod out of a 1941 GMC pickup and I am interested in maybe converting the doors to "suicide" doors. Do you have kits for this or can you steer me in the right direction? Thank you in advance for the help.”
Best regards - Joe

Hi, thanks for the question. You asked about a kit to suicide the doors on your 41 pickup and we apologize but we don’t have a complete “one part number” kit built. We do offer universal hidden door hinges under part number 91135311 which a lot of customers use to do the suicide conversion. Then we have the Bear Jaw latches (91052860) in left and right, the striker pins (91052861), and cage nuts (91052869). From there the alterations and modifications in most instances depend on personal preference. The kits for the later pickups may also be adapted to your pickup such as number 9103038. Instructions for the install can be read on our website under that part number and we also have the .pdf instructions file available on that product page. This would give you an overview on how the kit works and modifications to suicide the doors. Feel free to visit us on the web at www.speedwaymotors.com or call 1-800-979-0122 with questions or to place an order.
