The rear window is different, the 74-81 firebirds has a wraparound style rear glass while the 71,2,3 had an almost flat glass style. I think the early front clip will swap onto the 80 front subframe just fine. I put a 71 RS split bumper camaro front clip on a 79 RS camaro and it worked just fine, thinking these cars are fairly similar I don't think you'll have a problem. The rear bumper and rear panels are also different but with enough enginuity I'm sure you could make it work. The decklids are all the same I'ms sure. I agree, the older steel bumpered design looks way better than the alluminum and plastic bumpered later designs. Get to work! Bob
