Explain just exactly where the difference is then.
The grill will still work and you can switch the complete doghouse out and be fine, the fenders on the 73 were enlarged somewhat to aid in the safety bumper/5 mile hr bumper. The recess aera where the bumper sit's is slightly different. that's all the difference i know about and some of the mounting brackets might be allittle different also for the new style bumper. but all this can be made to work seen it done ex-specially if you have a complete car sitting there to work from. JMO
But TommyK if you know something we don't then please share it with us . The one thing i don't want to do is give someone the wrong info if i can help it anyway.
