sevt_chevelle The fender ext are the same from 71-72 chevelle and elky. Granted that chevelle-elky exts are different but they are same from 71-72. All you need to do is swap out the turn signal bezels and lamps.
You also need a different grille, also forgot in the prior reply you need a different headlight bezel as well.

So in order to make a 72 chevelle into a 71 chevelle you need the following.
1: turnsignal bezels
2: turnsignal lamps
3: grille
4: headlight bezels
Those four items is what makes the 71 and 72 different, everything else is the same.

Brian, the hood does stick out more on the 72 because the 71 has that raised bar(chrome piece) right below it, where the 72 is flat.

MARTINSR Isn't the hood longer over the grille?

I have a 72 el camino and I believe you need to change the front fender extension not just the bezel and the grille is differant. NOT SURE how close this is to the chevelle I do know my 72 it is identicle to the chevelle wagon. Ed ke6 bnl

KnightRunner why do you wanna change the front end? i could see if you were changing it to like a 68-70....but the 71-72 look really close. but you would need the headlight bezels, grill, and most everything around the grill area.

69ChevelleAddict They are slightly different but I dont know HOW different
Btw that front parking light is the easiest of the changes, just swap the bezel+lense and BAM! knew that part allready though.

The main difference I see is the little space inbetween the headlight bezel and the grille i dont know if that is part of the grille or what.

nick62877 the 72 has single front parking lamps, where the 71 has double. i can't think of anything else cosmetically different.

Chevelle front end.

What parts would it take to turn a 72 Chevelle front end into a 71?
