Shave doors refers to a vehicle whose doors do not have handles on the outside of the vehicle in order to present in a smooth, clean, look. It was pioneered by legendary customiser Harry Westergard in California.
Often called autolocs, or autoloc doors, after a popular manufacturer of such doors, they are popular on hot rods, street rods, muscle cars, Asian imports, trucks, and mini trucks. It is also a traditional modification on many lead sleds, dating back to the 1940s. A solenoid is used to open the door. This solenoid can be triggered by button or remote. They can also be opened mechanically with a hidden cable release.
