Metal removed from split doors

I stumbled upon this 110 the other day and have been confused by the doors. Doesn't the old handle split door like on this 1985 have a metal bar just below the window? Does anyone know how to remove it for this clean look without compromising the strength of the door?

These are not split doors ....

1983 / 1984 have split doors where the doortops can be removed.
1985 / 1986 have lift up handle one piece doors, the metal strip on the outside is only cosmetic for appearance.
1987 and onwards, have one piece push button doors.

Ah! That makes sense -- thank you for clearing that up. It looks sharp with the trim removed.

Ha, I recognise the car... I think I built that one..

It is even worse, '83/'84 split doors, '85 one piece doors came in with lift handle and roll up windows, and the cosmetic strip on the outside, '86 same doors but without the strip, and from dec '86 they started doing the push button doors.
