That would be cool, I have always liked the 73 to 75 grill better than the 79 I have now. I,m thinking all we need is 4 grill inserts and 4 headlight buckets, and a grill shell. Then with a bit of cutting and fiberglassing it can happen. If I had those parts I,d be right on it. Love the look.
1973 F250, 390 4spd 7500 lbs GVWR, renamed "Old Ugly." It fits.
next project: 1966 Mustang 200 3spd- sat for 17 years!

I would be willing to give it a try if someone sends me 2 sets of grilles and 2 sets of headlights.
BUT... let's be realistic doods... the headlights need support, and adding an extra set of lights will require the bowls behind the lights, which then require some sort of support to attach to the truck. Plastic grille is not gonna do that...
Additionally, extra lights in the grille would usually be for high-beams, so the sealed beams needed would not be the same. Think 1970's Jag lights... Wiring would need some rework too.
Regardless of all that, it does look awesome, and I'd be willing to try fabricating it if someone has spare grilles and lights to send me.

Reason: Typo fix
Over in the bump section someone made a truck grill like this, but I think the lights were more inward. He used the standard lights and carefully cut the grill to size. Then used a PVC pipe neckdown as a housing to put into the grill. It looked really good!
