    Guys,

    I've got a set of '76 doors and I'm trying to determine what years they will fit?

    Thanks

    Actually, I think they'll fit nearly every year, at least after, what, '67?

    they will directly replace 75-83 doors. They will fit(with a little mod, just the change in stiker plate I think) 66-74 fj40/5. The 40's with the odd ball hard doors are the ones with corragated tops, normal fj40 doors don't fit these(well they fit but not right)

    these are 65 CT doors on a 67 fj45, if you look close you can see the difference

    (I polished up the doors thinking they would fit the 45...dang for 40 year old origianl paint they really did polish up well)

    damn it all, my text got lost!

    Short version. stoped officaily in 1964, but there are 65's(actaully not left over 64's) with the corragted top
    the bottoms are the same(for the most part) it's the uppers that are different, CT uppers have no inward curve like a "normal" hard top door does.

    they fit, but don't look right, see pics above

    Ok I have a question, I have a 65 that was made in early 64. I bought a hardtop and doors from a 72. My question is will every thing fit up correctly. Will there be that gap like in the picture? My cruiser is a softop model if that mean anything. Thanks.
