    I found a good deal on door panels, but they are intended for 81-87 Silverados.
    My doors are the 73-80 type.
    I know the whole door from a 81-87 wil bolt onto the earlier cabs, but is the door panel different?
    I have manual windows and manual door locks.

    They will fit..... The only problem is the door handle will need to be trimed out or get the inside handles for a newer rig....

    73-75 door panels are square on the top. I got some sweet 77 door panels at a junkyard once and went to put them on and they DO NOT fit. They curved up at the top. So if you have the early doors, then they wouldn't work...but if you have post 76, then you should be OK.

    Sure will...changed my 79's interior over to the 90's gray with an 81 up dash pad and 83 bezel. Had to use the late model inner door handles though so they fit the bezels on the late sytle.
