The doors from any 1972 through 1976 torino, gran torino and ranchero will fit. The ranchero doors have a different glass.

Your welcome. The fastbacks have a slightly different glass than the formal roofs. The difference is at the top of the glass where it meets the rear quarter window. They will interchange, but you might not get a good weatherproof seal from the rain.

Yes the doors are the same, but the glass is different. The 75 and 76 rancheros might have different door trim/moulding than your door too.

if you are referring to the wide rocker trim, that can be added to a door that doesn't have it.

My doors were toast on my 72 GTS Sportsroof.  I bought a 73 Formal roof a few years back and switched out the doors/locks.  Took a few other parts I needed too and sold the 73 for a profit.  Free parts, the doors were perfect and I made a little cash.  I read this post not long after I sold the 73, where the windows are different.  Oh well, behind me now.  Does anybody know the measurements between the Sportsroof and Formal Roof window glass?  I see Dearborn has some listed as out of stock, but does not mention Sportsroof or Formal Roof.  I have to assume Formal Roof.  Saw some on eBay last week, but no mention on which there either.  Had some in a local yard here, but he has been selling off a lot lately including all the Fastbacks to retire.  Will post the request in the parts wanted section.
