capri mustang hatch switch

i have an 84 capri, the back window was recently smashed out and a replacement costs $1500. So i decided to switch to a mustang hatch, are they interchangeable? If so, what years are? thank you very much

The 80/82 Capri and Mustang used the same hatch. The 83/85 and 86 Capri used a unique hatch (bubble glass). In turn this unique hatch requires a matching rear body panel. The hatches will interchange, but without the Mustang rear body panel, you will have to fabricate a latch mount, and even then will have an air gap.

So you would have to change the hatch, rear body panel and lamp assemblies to make it work.
