71 442 Front Bumper Question


Guest

Recommended Posts

I have a 71 442 Convertible. The front bumper has the square turn signal lenses. Shouldn't this year have the round lenses? Are these bumpers interchangeable? Do I actually have a 70 front cap? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/icons/confused.gif" alt="" />

70 and 71-72 bumpers are quite different where the grilles match up. The '70 bumper is taller due to the short grill design. In '71-'72 the car has taller grilles which makes the bumper shorter. The only contour the same for both 70 and 71-72 front bumpers would be where it fits to the front fenders. Henry.

So Dave says "yes" and 66400 says "no"? Hmm. 66400, I take it that I will not have an easy time just swapping out the 70 bumper for the correct 71? Will I have to change anything else out on the front cap? grills, etc?

Thanks for your help everyone.

OK, after checking some pics and comparing, I see there are some cosmetic differences in the way they are stamped other than the parking lights. However from close examination the dip for the grills appears to be the same and they should interchange fairly easy. There might be some interference between the tongue on the hood and the bumper. Go to www.442.com and look in the virtual car show to see for yourself.
