    Hey guys, being new to mopars any advice would be appreciated.

    I have a 1971 2-dr dart that needs a new roof. What roofs would fit on my dart? All 70-76 scamps and darts? anything else?

    There is a 69 4-dr dart for cheap near me and I am thinking of shortening that roof, but would be nice to know if it would even work before getting into that car.

    2 door ht. all the same from 67-76. I believe the roof skins for 2 and 4 door sedans from 67-76, including 74-76 Valiants which are based on a Dart body are the same.
    I'm in El Dorado Hills and I have a sedan roof from a 69 Dart.

    Correct, they interchange 67-76 but it has to be a hardtop. The 4 doors and post cars have a taller, and either slightly wider or narrower roof I can't remember which. C-pillar is also different on those cars.

    So if you have a 2 door hardtop that's what you need to find. Can be 67-76, but it has to be a 2 door hardtop.

    Forget modifying a 4 door roof to fit your 2 door hard top.
    The windshield angle is wrong, the rear window and how the roof skin is shaped at the back is different etc. etc.
    What you need is a roof skin from a '67 to '76 2 door hard top car whether it is a Dart or a Scamp.
    The inner structures are a little different on the cars from '72 to '76, but the outer skins should be the same.
    Too bad you don't live closer to me, i have a few that i would let go pretty cheap........
