521 vs 620 Tailgate

Recommended Posts

Hello, first time post.

 

Ive been trying to track down a tailgate for my 521. If I am not mistaken, the tailgate is EXACTLY the same but the latches are different. Any help would be much appreciated.

620 and 520/521 tailgates are different. In fact, the closest thing about them is the Datsun stamping.

Thanks DatzenMike! Whoa, Ive owned both and I had no idea how different they are. So, size wise are the totally different dimensions as well? In other words can you get a 521 to fit onto the 620 at all? I think I know the answer to this.  Sorry for the fire drill!

It's not going to work at all, regardless of "fitting", unless you also heavily modified the hinges.  521 has an inboard hinge, 620 is an outside hinge (notice the hinge barrel locations).
