Good day everyone,
Can someone please tell me if any early Bay-window bus rear hatch will fit fine onto a 1965 Splitty-bus? Thank you for your help!

I believe the latching area is different.
Early bay rear hatch will onto a 67, but will have the wires for a rear window defroster.
I've seen a 67 rear hatch on a bay.

Yes, it will fit. The lock itself is the same, but if you don't have the right outside handle you will need to change the area around the lock.

I did this and you can see what I did in my build thread.

The picture can be found towards the bottom of page 6.
