I very much dount it. i looked into changing and 84 mk i think it was from 4 - 5 speed and it involved different tail shaft and cost of gear box as well wich isnt a factor your lookin at in this case. and if you have the seats might as well just have a go and try swap them, i think the early model nissans were virtually the same apart from chasis width maybe in the leaves to coil reconfiguration, and the interior and body panels.
