Default door glass , is panelvan the same as sedan ?

Hi guys. im new here so hello. i will be hanging around this great forum a bit from now on as i am restoring a 1980 escort van


Im debating how to repair / replace the scratched door glass. ive seen new door glass is available for the sedan but nothing for the van.
i dont suppose the glass is the same ?

help appreciated

ps. anyone had luck removing the scratches by polishing or other methods ?

cheers

IIRC the MK2 Escort van doors are still essentially MK1 Escort.

Any Escort gurus out there?

my suspicions seem to be correct. mk1 -2 door . door glass fits the mk1 and mk 2 van.

.... and the MK2 van front guards are unique to the van !!! Bridge the gap between shared Mk2 grille/headlights and Mk1 doors.

youre definately right there . all the dash section from a mk2 van, like gauge cluster and crash pad is the same as a mk2 sedan though isnt it ?

and i ordered brand new glass today with the supplier confirming its the same as the mk1 2 door

The Mk2 van dash and dash pad are narrower than the sedan.

The steel part of the dash and top is different, as far as I know the rest is ok. I got caught buying the timber trim from a Mk2 sedan.

I thought Ford were really clever at reusing parts across as many vehicles as possible so as to reduce stocking and production costs. Sounds like the Mk2 vans are somewhat 'special' and 'individual'.
