I'm restoring a "67 Beetle. Can I substitute "68 doors? Also, does anyone know where I can get suitable doors? Thanks for any help.

The doors will fit but the '67 had a one year only lock/latch mechanism. I'm not sure what the specific difference is or whether the 68 and up mechanism will work without modification.
Where can you find some '68 up? I have lots. (Unfortunately no 67 doors). _________________ '57 Sunroof (Keeping!)
