Yes if they're the same body style, like both 2 dr hardtops, but if the 300 Deluxe is a 2 dr sedan (post) body it's a no go. The 300 Deluxe was available in both 2 dr sedan and 2 dr hardtop body styles as well as 4 dr sedan. If both 4 dr sedans yes. On 2 dr the Malibu will have a stainless trim strip along the lower area whereas the 300 Deluxe doesn't. Also if the 300 Deluxe is a 2 dr hardtop and the Malibu is a convertible I believe the swap will work.

Hey Von - Happy New Year! :waving:

is the hardtop door put on the sedan something that is just an issue of no window sealing? If so could the roof rail have the channel and weather strip added and then something fabbed up for the b pillar weatherstrip seal? Or is there additionally a physical mismatch/interference? I always assumed the door could bolt in and open/close, just not seal to the window. I could be way off though.
