1979 chevy front end swap.

I have a 79' chevy but want to have the front end off of a 85' or so, when they went to the quad headlights. i was woundering if it is an easy swap? will it just bolt in or will i have to modify anything?

I take you are talking about trucks..............It will probably bolt on, but I think the belt line changed in 80.

you can swap it, you will need pretty much everything in front of the windshield, hood, fenders inner and outer, rad support, bumper, i believe the wipers are different as well, and you should get the wiring harness of of the '85 as well as the headlight wiring will be different.

Hope this helps,

Chris
