Swapping Questions


Recommended Posts

Man, where do I start...in the last 48 hours I found out that the motor in my 69 is way far gone...will need a total rebuild. Found a clean 76 in real nice shape except for the front end...the guys daughter rear ended someone 5 years ago, pushing the fan into the radiator...car has sat since then. My first thought was to take the motor and transmission out and put it in the 69. The more I thought about it the more I am leaning towards doing the exact opposite. The damage on the front end is dead center, above the bumper and hood. I have taken a body off of a "normal" framed car. But never off one of these. Will the entire front clip (fenders and grill piece) detach in one piece so I can swap them out? Also, has anyone ever swapped out square tail light section for roundies? Thanks for all the help. If I can get the front done and the car running again I will drive as is and do the rear at a later time.
