1982 rear window vs. 1985 rear window

Postby Icyque77 » Sat Dec 19, 2020 8:59 pm

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I joined because I just acquired a 1982 Datsun 720 King Cab. I removed an after market rear slider and want to install OEM single piece glass, but I can't find an OEM. However, I saw on eBay a single piece OEM but it came off a 1985 720 King Cab. Is it compatible? I don't want to spend $200 plus shipping if it doesn't fit. Does anyone know? Thank you

There were 3 different p/n's for the non-sliding rear window on the '82 720 KC, and two of the three cross over to the '85. The differences may be tint, defogger, etc, but with 2 out of 3 cross-matching, I'd say there's a good chance they all fit in the same hole.
