Another fender question

Post by patman on Thu Mar 15, 2018 5:45 pm

Guy's I had asked a bit ago if the 1973 Century and the 74-75 are the same. The book said no but as far as I can tell it's due to the change in marker light position on the marker light.

Here's my new question. What about the 76&77? They went to those goofy square headlights but are the fenders different? If so is it more than a move to the marker light? They look like they could be taller to accommodate the stacked headlights maybe? I've got a shot at a running driving 77 for cheap but I don't want to buy the and not be able to use them.


Thanks!

The fenders on '73-'77 Chevelles/Malibus are called out as the same in the Hollander interchange manual; even though Chevy went with the stacked square headlights in '76/'77. Same with Montes. So, it does make me wonder if there isn't something else besides the headlights that differentiates '76/'77 Buick fenders from '73 & '74/'75 in the Hollander.

Does Hollander show them as different?

Whoa Patman we're all in the same G3 family! Some like a single, some like a 2-fer.

and you're wrong, they are not goofy square headlights, they are rectangular. moving on. Smile
