    I have a 71 that needs door locks, the problem is I have no idea what year doors are on it. I know they’re not 71s. They have the riveted on inner door handles. The doors are either 74s or 78s I believe. I don’t know what length cylinders I need.

    Did those work to operate the locks and doors?
    Why you replacing them?

    The locks are on the original 71 doors, those aren’t on the car, the doors on the car are later model , plus no keys.

    Could you pop the locks off the 71 doors and try them on the unknown doors. There's only 2 lock sizes I thought. Or you could email NPD or whoever your looking to get locks from and ask them
