Will a 1970 front end fit on any Firebird up until 1981? If so, anyone know if there's a kit or something or Should I buy everything individually?

Darrell Velicer


Most items need to be bought individually. You need to buy a nose ($500-$700), core support ($300-$400) and 2 sets of nose brackets ($350).

Any fenders will work but '70-'73 fenders have the lower mounting brackets for the valance that the others don't and those brackets are not reproduced so you either have to make them or find a set off a rusted out pair of fenders. You will also need a '70-'76 hood, headlight backing plates, headlight buckets, wiring harness, lower valance, headlights, headlight bezels, turn signals, nose grilles and brackets.

I am sure I am  forgetting a couple or other items.

Well over $3K if you can find all the parts. Then add in your paint and body work.
