    Thanks anyways emoji22.png

    Did I miss something or were those the correct earlier door cards. I thought the later ones were more than 5 1/2" from the door edge? I'm so confused!!!

    His original pics did not show the detail of the door lock position. I supplied pics of a tape measure with the correct position. He measured his car (correct original cards) and then the spare cards (77’s) and they were not the same.

    Once again, the elusive unicorn door cards elude me.

    I missed the second picture. I saw the first one with the correct dimension. I will keep my eyes open for them. What kind of shape do they need to be in?

    I noticed that the top picture is from a 75 (possibly even 76?) I'm not exactly sure when they changed the connectors from the smaller size to the larger size connector blocks.

    The lower picture is for a 77 or 78.

    10 pin connector is the give-away for model fitment.

    That's just it. As good as the OP's at least and reasonable price, otherwise I will go and have custom door cards made and rebuild the backings where the speakers had been cut in.

    I'll have to crawl under the 75 tonight and check. I'll update the second to reflect 77/78.

    Soon I'll be asking for your address to send a case of beer!

    Woohoo! I work for beer!

    I've got to check all of my nooks and crannys, (I'm thinking I already have a spare set), but those door cards are looking better and better to me.

    Chris,

    Sorry again to be the bearer of bad news, but the 'evap canister' you list is actually a vaccuum reservoir for 75-78 with factory installed A/C.

    Your example is probably the best I have seen.

    I'm still talking to Peter to be able to put off Paul to get them door cards....

    What happened to the old set of 75 cards you mistakenly ordered the first time?

    Sorry Mark,

    Those went away a few years ago. Those were super NICE...  Now I'm having sellers remorse.... I could have doubled my money selling to you (which would be half of what the OP is selling his now)..... I digress...

    IIRC, I grabbed a ton of stuff off that '76 that was in the junkyard (I made monthly trips to the Eastern Shore, and took a looooong lunch). After 4 visits, the fifth visit came up empty as the man crushed that car.

    Rubber intake hose shipped to 60102? This should fit a '77 right? Thank you.

    I'm not really sure what that rubber intake hose is for.... Doesn't look like a Z part to me. Is that ZX maybe?

    A 280ZX hose will have a smaller opening at the throttle body.  They have a smaller TB.

    I only added the comment for verification.  If he measures the openings it will tell something.

    I think that I have a ZX tube out in the garage that came with a 1981 engine.  A good reason to go dig around.

    @Pmg let me measure the openings and get that info out today so we can make sure it is applicable to your model.

    Apologies for the delayed response and thanks for the interest.

    Okay, re-attack on the door cards discussion. So the ones you have for sale are for a 77/78 from what I read. I have a 77. Manufactured in 11/76. My door cards are in rough shape. If these fit my year what do you want for them?

    If you go fetch the door cards, how about you grab the heater blower box for me?

    Personal delivery would be fantastic!       LOL

    I’m not sure where he lives but happy too if it works out. Captain are we sure all 77 doors and cards are the same. I know there was some mid-year production changes to the car in 77, like the sloped vs flat rear decking. We know the doors changed in 77, I learned that the hard way when I harvested a 76 drivers window only to discover it didn’t fit my 77. If anyone need a drivers window that’s in nice condition let me know.

    The doors changed for the last time in August 1976

    Oh and for anyone else watching. I am currently in Sumter, SC (29154). Heading near Destin, FL. Don't plan on taking any with me but if the destination is closer let me know and we can work something out to save on shipping.
