Both will require some fabrication/welding. I think the older turn signals
had much smaller openings. You'd have to fill in some space.

If you want an early hood, you'd have to weld in a clip. The apron is
different. I believe the front fenders are different as well, so you'd need
to get pre-69 fenders. It would be a fair amount of work.

Why not look for a '69?? As Richard Scarry would say, "It's the best year
ever" - hehe.
