56 Fairlane 2-door hardtop

Asked by Feb 09, 2017 at 12:28 PM about the 1956 Ford Fairlane

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The doors on my 56 Fairlane Victoria do not close well.
Striker plates are good and hinges are tight. Alignment is
not a problem.  I have noticed that the rotors on the latches
have a lot of play in them and seem a little sloppy. Would
this be a possible cause?

You probably need new latches in the doors. After all the car is more than 60 years old.
