    Most guys use the Vega hatch... assuming you’re building a clone.

    I don’t think it matters what year. The hatch was the same on all of them.

      You can also use a hatch from a Pontiac Astre, it was the cousin of the Vega.
      I just scored a nice one from a salvage yard last week for $100.00.
      The Vega/Astre window has a slightly different shape than the Daytona's. The glass flares out at the bottom a bit and the bottom edge has a slight curve.

      Check the local C.L. The Chevy weenies do not know of this trick of using a Vega hatch. I picked one up for $35.00 for a complete hatch assembly. Once they find out there will be the usual Mopar mark up on price....

        No, you need the hatch back style, not the station wagon like pictured.

        Does anyone have measurements for me to go off of for using a vega hatch. I finally found one in a junk yard and I'm getting ready to install it. I just dont know where it needs to be positioned. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

        The wagon window is actually more like the correct shape of an original Daytona /500 rear window, I wonder if the demensions of the glass are close?

        This will appear rude but with the way you appear, this is a pretty big step.
        Sure you want to swing for the fences on this? Maybe start off with a simpler project to build some skills....
