IIRC, '70-'74 fenders are identical.

Cobalt is correct, the 73-74 just uses a die cast bolt-on front fender cap at the front edge instead of the polished eyebrow molding that the '68-72 has.

'68-69 fenders can also be used but the side marker light hole is a different size, the 68-69 have a smaller hole but IIRC can be modified to work by enlarging the hole to fit the later side light.

Because you can't see both the sides of the front fenders at the same time (w/o a mirror), it'd be funny to run both kinds- like my buddy did w/2 different sized outside door handles on his Camaro. lol
