I have been told that it's 3M Strip Caulk, but I've used that on taillights
and some side trim and it seems to dry out and leak too easily.  I'd
contemplate using something like a urethane sealant you can get at an
autobody supply store.
I'm sure if you look around enough you could find a door in the same colour
as your car that you could just drop in as a replacement - many wrecking
yards have numerous type 44's sitting with a full set of doors (of course,
the pinstriping would have to be redone).  Check www.car-part.com for a
partial list of places with doors.  Chances are they'll come with the side
beam and you won't have to worry about the sealant.
