    Is there any difference on the doors themselves, or can I just swap GT panels on to non GT doors?
    Thanks,
    Russ

    Thanks. I would be taking the panels off so getting the brackets will be easy.

    Yes, I'm hijacking this thread, because the original question has been answered. I had the door panels off with my '64 a few months ago, and there are brackets that can be used for mounting the arm rests in a second location. Were the arm rests actually at a different location for other Falcon variants?

    I tried to put '64 standard arm rests on my '65, but the screw spacing was too narrow; had to get the '65 versions.

    That's interesting. I didn't know there were differences in the actual arm rests from '64 to '65. Engine size, generator to alternator, dash trim, probably lots more. But the arm rests are news to me.
