69 70 front fender question

Are 69 and 70 front fenders the same ? Wondering if 70 eyebrow mouldings will fit a 69..having trouble finding a decent driver set...if that's the case could you use a 70 hood, grille and bumper on a 69 and make it look like a 70 ? ...not that I ever would ...just wondering

69 and 70 eyebrow moldings are not the same. The fender extensions are different.

There are some cases where owners have installed 70 front clips on a 69 and probably vice versa.

You cannot mix and match. We have decent used eyebrow mouldings.

FWIW, I believe the fenders (alone, not including the extensions) will interchange but the marker light openings are smaller on the 69 fender.

I would place a wanted ad on this site and watch ebay as at least one set a month pops up there.

Keep in mind I would give extra credit for any 1970 extension trim turned in with your 69 trim
