It should fit as theyíre same except for the turn signals in the í73. There may be a bracket difference because of the turn signals, I canít recall as itís been some time since Iíve worked on them. Any tweaking you may need to do to mount the grill is probably due to previous installation error that you may need to correct.

Posting a few pictures would help us with your installation problem.

Common sense will tell you but you also said you had the grill in the car and it fit but not just right, And as you stated the car has been hit so i agree with the other post you will have to tweak it to get it right and then you should be fine.JMO But all and all it should fit IMHO.
Just trying to help :thumbup:

As far as looks the bumper and the grill design is alittle different, but as far as taking the whole doghouse and putting it on the 72 should fit with no problems other then lining it all up and that's anytime you do these changes. :thumbup: Changing the doghouse out is a straight out swap for a 72 and 73 IMHO
