There are some 4-doors that fit the bill when it comes to cool cars. For me, the look of a 4-door hardtop... the ones with a pillarless opening when the windows are down, are the best. There is something about cruising in a 4-door hardtop with the windows down in the summer time that is great fun.

Here's a '57 Buick we spied at the Antique Automobile Club of America's website... it's a very cool car.

That's rad. I imagine the pillar where the rear doors mount and the front door latches has to be pretty beefy.

It is indeed a strong fabrication. It is designed to provide for solidly triangulated in-out support as well as fore-aft. If you look at any of the GM 4-door hardtops of that era you can see just how strong it is. Also the body mounts on the frame in that area were in a different position than on the sedans to provide better support.

Of course, the Mack Daddy of all the 4-door hardtops is the 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham...

Did not know about the body mounts. Good info, thanks!
