1977 Ranchero new hood/front clip/fender?

I'm curious if there are any other parts to replace 1977s front fenders, hood, front clip, doors?

I'm leaning more toward no on the fenders or doors because of the line differences.. There are no real lines on my rancheros it's mostly smooth (curved) with a lower line. But never know there might be a similer car..

But the hood and fenders of it, are related in lines. And I'm wondering what other front clips/hoods bolt on to change the style?

I won't mind the custom work to smooth out the side of the front clip to match the rest of the rancheros lines (or lack thereof). I wouldn’t mind going some cutting work either..

Oh yeah, front and rear bumpers too!

The T Bird front clip looks cool on those trucks.

Indeed, and it's a little more sporty. I'm wonding if there are any options,

like, doors from this car, fenders from this car, hood and front clip from this car...etc. Something. Older.. Bumper from this car..

Everything forward of the firewall, I believe, can be mix & match. T Bird fenders w/louvers, LTD II header & grill or GT stuff. One hood fits all.
Doors may be a different matter. If the door shell is same/same, maybe you can just swap the glass.
Older/different body group stuff? To each his own, but I'm too lazy to start fussin' with stuff that "sorta" fits.

fenders with lovers??

I'm curious if one car is 'longer' in the front end then another. If there are 'shorter' fenders to use. All that wasted space in the front of the car..

Wasn't it the 79 Bird that had those little plastic louvers on the fenders?
Do you REALLY want to shorten the front end? OK, start cutting!
I think the over-all long look is what's so good about that body Ranchero. Like it's a super luxury truck.
