FRONT CLIPS

Postby robertjferna » Thu Jan 23, 2020 10:47 am

Hello, Question, can a front end, fenders and valance be swapped between a wagon and say a hatchback? On a 72 specifically. I know the windshields wont but what about the front clip? trying to find parts for my wagon. Thanks in advance! Bob

Hi Bob, I don't have any personal experience with Vegas, but the h-body FAQ indicates the sheet metal forward of the doors will swap:

Bob,

Yes, the front clips will interchange within the generation: '71-'73 and '74-'77. But the grilles and headlight buckets are different between the '74-'75 and '76-'77.
