Differences between '72-'73 fenders
#1
Besides the indentation where the bumper mounts, what other differences are there to fenders from '72 and '73?

After finding out my passenger side fender is from a '73, I looked closer and the wheel is closer to the lip on the passenger fender than on the driver side. Before I got the car my dad had the chassis laser measured when the front end was rebuilt and it's supposedly square, so this damn fender is the only thing that is different.

Beside the lip for the 5 mile bumper, the marker light is in a diff spot on the 73. Those are what I know. I also know even if damaged try to find oem fenders. We didn't, bought l & r dynacorn and boy are we sorry. Wouldn't ever again, to many fit issues and body line issues.

Hello jennyrn95630@yahoo.com,


Wow, Very disappointing! My take is, if you are going to repop it, at least make sure the fit and finish is acceptable!

Did it ever fit right or even look good?

Steve,
The end lip where the bumper sits and fender extension mounts are the ONLY changes
Wheel well is the same
Marker light is the same

Jenny - maybe that is why the original tooling fender extensions you sent back did not fit.

Fenders turned out okay but eveything took work which = $$. Don we took a chrome extension, blasted the chrome off and ground on them. Will be good to be done with the exterior soon.

Steve, the location of the side marker lights is diff 71,72 vs 73.

Hmmm...thanks for all the input. I didn't really find a difference in marker light locations.

I'm still having fitment issues but the unibody is supposedly within specs. My passenger side wheel is closer to the fender lip than the driver side. I need to confirm panel alignment.

Off by enough! I'd say 3/8" or 1/2". The front end was rebuilt by a shop many moons ago. I haven't had the time to dig into it.
