Post Camaro vs Firebird

My question problum is that I have a 75 firebird, the salvage yard has may second gen. camaros. I need new doors but the yard guy says camaro doors are longer? (I didn't think that was possible) Does any one know of a web site that lists what parts are interchangeable between these two cars?
I've been looking in my free time but with no sucess. Any help would be cool Thanks!

No body panels are interchangable between the two. Camaro's bodylines are actually much shaper than the smoother subdude lines of a firebird/Trans Am. My advice would be to buy a door skin and replace your old one instead of the whole door. There only $50 and easier than searching forever to find what you need.

holy crap HK! i thought, primary cause the weatherstripping is the same, that the doors were the same!

on second thought, that junk yard guy would know, and he would not pass up the chance to sell you a door!
