Hi Everybody . I have obtained a new project , going a little up market and obtained a 260z 2+2 . Now this car needs a couple of doors , 1 due to rust but could repair , the other due to somebody putting large dent in it . I have been looking at both Ebay and Gumtree and come across what i'm looking for but in Ebay, doors are advertised FOR 2+ 2 BUT some are advertised to suit certain year makes . Is there a variation in doors over the years when this car was make OR will all doors be the same and fit all year makes . I guess it's still a Datsun question.

Maybe not going to help much, but when I rust repaired / sprayed my brother's 2 seater I bought one door shell to replace a rusted one. Fitted great, painted it all up, then went to re-assemble the car and put the glass and winder mechanism in only to discover it was different.....

Bought the glass & winder to match the door and all was good. So yeah, door was different but interchangeable as a whole. I can't remember exactly what year his car was ('76 rings a bell ?) or what year the door shell was - it was near 30 years ago.

Perhaps 2+2 are the same ?

I think the position of the door lock knob and the window regulator vary between year models.
I recommend you search the VicZCar forums, most things are covered there.

Cheers

Just for anybodies info , there is a complete difference i have discovered between a series 1 door up to some time in 76 and series 2 door 76 on-wards. Series 1 door latch is similar or same (on door ) to 240z and 1600's , where as the series 2 door latch is recessed into door , more like later model cars .
