    At first glance it looks like a 1970, especially in the night when it looks like the picture was taken. After enlarging it with some software, and putting more light in it, it is indeed a 1972, or a 1973-74 with 72 bumpers.

    70 grille and hood. Or a lot of work to put 72-74 sidemarker lights on it. Or good photo shop.

    So here is the grill enlarged and lightened up. You can see the lines of the blacked out 72-74 grill.

    I think that it looks pretty good. The 70 and 71 styling looks better to me than the 72-74 did. I did a similar trick to a '73 I had years ago.

    The pictures posted here made me think; how difficult would it be to modify the 72-74 fiberglass grill surround to fit the 70 egg crate grill section (available in repro form) by recessing it into the existing panel? With some fiberglass work of course! Could be a cool modification.

    The hood has not been changed, it is a 72-74. The side markers are also 72-74.

    What do they want for it? If it is very clean, solid, and no shoddy work, maybe $25,000. Does it have a VIN tag or fender tag?
