You cant put 1971 fender extensions on a 70 core support 70 is all on its own

Would the 70 extension match up with the fender of a 72

I don't think so. I believe the dowel is different for the 70 also the 70 has a round headlight bezel and the 71 is square. What are you looking for? lots of spare parts to be had here. Post what you need in the for sale/ wanted section.

My issue is I got 71 extenstions, but they seem to be blocking the headlight a bit.So I thought perhaps the previous owner replaced the core with that of a 70.

actually there are about three different core supports per each year eek
there are some very good threads about this, use our search feature to look for them, explaining this is very lengthy lol

If the headlights are not lining up with the fender extensions, it's very likely you have a 70 core support.

Your options are to finmd a 71 core support, but 1970 front end parts (extensions, grill, bumper) or try to modify the core support you have to fit 1971 parts. In my opinion, I probably wouldn't try modifying the core support.

As for the different types of core supports (within the same odel year) out there, they had one for a small rad (not very common) and a larger rad. So, in 1970 there are 2 types and in 71 there are 2 types. I think 72 they all had the same support which is the same as the larger rad support for 71.

The reason for the differene between the 1970 support and the 71/72 support is that they decided to move the headlights outwards a little bit for 71. The headlight was now located directly below one of the bolts that holds down the fender so they had to move it up about 1/2 inch higher. The area where the fender bolts to the core support is flat in 1970 but in 71/72 they had to create a "step" for the fender bolt above the headlight.

then would a 70 grill,ext and bumper work? defintely don't want to try and modify anything and ruin this rusty beauty.
