Resurrecting this thread to see if a ducktail made for a 964 fits a 76 911. Are the fitments the same? Thanks for any help.

No.
Early (pre 89) 911,s have different hinges to a 64.

As 964russ says - fitment is different between the two models, but that said, I'm running an 'early' ducktail on my 964 with the factory adapter plates (the same one used to mount the RSA tails).

One would have to measure the mounting holes to verify whether mounting brackets would allow the tail to work. Good luck!

Thanks for the replies! Will see if changing the hinges will work. Hopefully, the mounting points are in the same place.

Either change the hinges to early 911.
Or weld sum brackets on.

Alternatively buy one made a 964.

"Shamus" you have adapter plates?

Do you know the part no?

GT Racing adapators rather cheaper (though still a lot for what they are)

Yeah - NLA if memory serves. I bought mine as a set from Ebay with the decklid hinges. I figured I'd go this route since most OEM or aftermarket 911 wings (ala RSA tea tray) would need the brackets.

So the alternative would be to use 3.2 or SC hinges?

Seems like a better idea than adaptors, and cheaper to pick a set up I would have thought

Hinges vary in price.
Roughly ú100 a pair for early ones.
Cheaper to make them.

Old thread but relevant.

Bought a ducky for the flash.
Fenn lane ducktail.

Quality of the fibreglass is good, smooth ect.
Fit is a bit more of an issue.

Bolts up ok, opens & shuts fine.
Theres a gap along top edge, below rear window.
As thou its too high. Gap is big enough to fit ya finger in.

Is there an adjustment on the hinge to make it sit lower?
