I have a 1955 2 door club sedan, Plymouth Savoy. Will this be the same as what you are looking for? I'm sorry but I don't know what a Kingsway is...

Kingsway is the Export version we got downunder , it has plymouth rear tailights but with dodge front sheetmetal , you could call it a "Plodge"

I know this might be tough in New Zealand but you will be much better off if you can at least find doors from a 2 dr sedan/club coupe.

Then you could follow along with this guy converting a 57 Chevy 4 dr sedan to a 2 dr.

It can be done but you'll need a 2-door donor car. Lots of stuff is different besides the doors.
