Is this a Datsun roadster top frame? If yes, what year?

My 1968 Datsun Roadster 2000 came with a convertible top frame. However, it does not fit my car. Is this frame for a Datsun Roadster? If yes, what year?

Thank you for the quick answer. I will keep it in the event someone needs one in the near future.

Those latches make me think it is '67-67.5 specific.

65-67. The 67.5 latches are different.
