yes the do fit ok..but you need to change the rod for the handle to the ef rod.. or if your good you can cut and bend the eb rod..

most of the holes line up, but if yours is a series 1 eb the holes for the pull handle and door handle need to be drilled..
if yours is eb2 or later the holes are already there..

and they line up really good with the dash...

I have a theory that ford was originally just going to update the door trims and the dash fascia but then got nervous so then redid the dash too.

i had a similar theory aswell..
i base this on the fact that eb2 and ed doors have the holes for the ef handles already drilled..
and also how well the trims line up with the dash..
