Can anyone enlighten me as to if the coupe and sedan front side glass "holders" (the part that holds the glass and connects it to the winder) are interchangeable? 2 cars and 4 holders and they are all rusted to pieces! (looks like a poor design that trapped water) I will probably end up fabricating new ones, but if the sedan ones are the same, I may have some options vs. coupe ones.

According to the parts catalogues they are not the same and have different part numbers.

I would suggest the holder is longer to match the length of the coupe (or two door sedan) glass.

I should clarify by sedan, I do mean the 2 door version.

Yes the two door and the coupe have matching part numbers for the holders.

If you are not able to source the holders in the US (Although I assume you will) I do have a 1976 Coupe parts car. I have not actually checked the holders, however I doubt they will be very rusty, if at all.

They are yours if you want (and you pay for shipping :grin:).

Why must it cost so much to ship even light items from down under? :( I may still hit you up as it will probably cost about the same here if I have to pay for the part and add shipping onto that. Can you check if they are in good shape when you get a chance?

I have no idea if Gen 1 Brat window tracks will fit, but they are pretty common, and the doors are the same length as the Coupe doors. Also interesting, the Gen 1 Brat units appear to be the same as the Gen 2 Wagon/Sedan front door units..... Might look into it

The Gen 1 Brat is basically a 'Stage 2' in terms of coupes or sedans and therefore has a completely different glass and window winder mechanism. Stage 2 door glass is actually much longer from top to bottom and goes deeper into the door than the stage 1.

I think it would take a lot of modification to fit stage 2 door glass and winder mechanisms into a stage 1, although I suppose it would be possible if you could source a stage 2 coupe (For Mark's situation in this thread).
