Will a late 240Z carpet set fit in an early 240Z?

Recommended Posts

I have a 240Z 1/1970 and I want to replace the carpet (that I made) with the MSA black carpet.  My car originally did not have those tool doors that open up towards the hatch like the '71 cars do but I obtained a couple from a parts car and installed them.  If I put carpet in my early car intended for the later 240Z will it fit okay?  I am considering the later carpet because I know it will work with the tool doors I put in.  Thanks for any ideas.

As long as you don't have the original black plastic tool covers installed behind the seats you should be okay,  but you may have to relocate the mounting bolts for the cargo straps otherwise you won't be able to lift the carpet flaps.

Later meaning 73?  Don't forget about the seat belts. I know the 73 had the recessed belts behind the seats compared to the 71 was just a bolt to inner rocker. 

Not sure if it will have much impact or not just something to consider.

  Thanks for the information grannyknot and JSM.  I had to move the cargo strap bolts when I put in the doors I had forgotten about that.  Gotta eat more coconut oil (good for memory?).  Looks like MSA has the carpet versions split between 70 to early 71 and late 71 to 73.
