1969 and 1970 fender extension

Hello, I’m new to this forum but I did have a quick question. I’m looking at purchasing a 1969 or 1970 mustang. I prefer the look of the 1969 fender extension with the dual light setup in front. My question is can you change the fender extensions on the 1970 to those of the 1969? If so would just that piece need to be changed or the fender as well? Thank you for your time.

Would think that you'd have to change the Front fenders on both sides to 1969 Fenders and Front Grille among other pieces that would be needed as well. to accomplish what you want....but then you'd still have 1970 rear taillights...

It's probably just easier to hunt for a decent '69 car...if that's what you desire....unless you get some screamin' deal somewhere...

The fenders are different as stated above, so are the front valances, the grilles & the necessary stainless trim.

I have a '70 Mach 1. Sure, switching a 1970 Mustang to the 4-headlight '69 configuration is doable. But it's pretty involved and, in my opinion, not really worth the effort. As suggested above, if you simply must have the '69 4-headlight setup, buy a '69 Mustang.

If you're looking for a coupe, you can pick those up pretty cheap. For some reason, the 69/70 coupes just aren't very popular and there are plenty still around. I like those cars, but most people don't. Fastbacks are a different story. The 69/70 fastbacks are extremely popular, harder to find and priced much higher.

Currently working on a 1970 Mach 1 project. See it here: http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/vi...ode-build.html

What is different about the fenders other than the cutouts for the side marker lights? Will a '69 and '70 fender physically interchange or are there more differences other than the side marker lights?

I believe the only difference is the on the 70 the side light is in the fender & on the 69 the side light is in the front valance.
