Q: Door Interchangeability
Need help on 1967 door question, Is the door the same for convert. and coupes? I looked at classic’s catalog and the have complete inner and outers for sale at some later date and no convert. listed for door. Does the vent window unbolt for shipment?/p>
A: The doors were different each year, but the same as the same year of Camaro. Your 1968 will need doors from another 1968, Camaro or Firebird.
A: That depends…….. if you have an early or late 1968 Firebird, they changed the design of mirror so door was also changed. Camaro stayed the same thru the year.
A: …Doors were common for 1967-1969 Coupes and Convertibles however, each year was different (different part numbers) due to Vent Window only in 1967, different Mirrors in 1968, new panels in 1969. Yes, the Vent Window Assy unbolts from the door and the glass assy is separate from the Weather Seal Assy.
A: I’d only add that 1967 doors used a 3 bolt hinge and the 1968 and 1969 cars used 4 bolt hinges. This makes the 1967 and 1968 further incompatible.
The door shells offered by Classic industries are just that, shells. They won’t come with the vent window frame work. You would be expected to transfer that, as well as all of the other internal parts in your door to the new shell. This isn’t very complicated.
See the Jan. 2000 issue of Chevy High Performance, “Just Wing It”, for a description of removing this part (as well as weather stripping install), as well as your “1967 Fisher Body Guide”.
A: 1967, 1968, and 1969 doors do not interchange. 1967 hinges are a 3 bolt type, and the 1968/1969 are a 4 bolt type. 1968 and 1969 don’t interchange because of the obvious difference in shape/character lines.
The aftermarket rear quarters will work with a fair amount of body work. I understand that convertibles represent more of a challange to get them to work. In somecases, rust free used quarters from the Southwest are a good alternative.
