Making a '80 Pontiac T/A a '73 T/A sorta clone?

Probably should be beat for thinking it but I always liked the lines/look of the 73 T/A, trouble is there just aren't any around, well that I can afford that is. I had a 76 and an 80, should have kept both of them but... Anyway a guy down the road has an 80 for sale no engine or trans, body in good shape.

I was thinking (getting dangerous here) that if I swapped fenders/hood/bumpers/tail lights I could have a 73 clone for fun. But the big question, will this stuff "bolt up" or will there be a lot of fabrication or just plain not fit? From my memory, which is getting old, from the doors back there isn't any difference from 73 to 80, or is there and I'm just not seeing/remembering it right??

I don't care that the interior will be wrong, or really anything else as the whole idea is wrong but would the parts fit up?
