There is a factory soft top style with ambulance doors (canvas). Common in European models.

The hard doors are not straight they taper inwards on the top ... it wouldn’t work well at all imho

I had seen straight panel doors made by PO’s for the rear of fst truck... only one looked half decent ... the rest were hack jobs

Many parts of the world got the ambi soft doors in the rear ... and some areas even had a choice between ambi or rear curtain

Later model fst had a combination of rear roll up curtain and ambi door on the folding bows version ... modeled my top after those
