i believe 4 doors have a slightly different angle to them but not noticeable enough for them not to be used

I have used a set off a Monte in the past can't see them being different from a Cutlass......But who knows with the way GM is.

Is it possible that the gasket only goes on one way or the they use different gaskets?

It's not really so much of a gasket. Each body style has a specific "base" and usually different internal bracing.
