86 911 door top “falling” - prior damage?

Hi all,

I’m looking at purchasing a car and there seems to be a possible prior damage. I thought the car looked great but sent a few pics to Bill (techweenie) and he saw this right away

Can anyone explain what might have happened?

Nice paint!

The door is lining up OK. Maybe a little low at the bottom, but OK. The window frame could be adjusted a little higher - not hard to do.

Matbe it has had some minor damage over it's 30 something years, but as long as it's been fixed well it will be fine.

But do the other stuff like head studs compression PPI usuals.

And good luck, it looks nice from what we can see.
