1978 to 1976-77 grille swap

First of all, hey everyone. Just bought a 78 F250, was originally looking for a Ď76-77. That being said, I know folks tend to go the other way with a grille swap (earlier to later), but I prefer the earlier grille styling.

Would anyone on here be interested in working out a mutual swap? The one Iíve got is in great shape (rectangular headlights, all metal straight with the exception of a few scuffs on the grille shell (can buff out). Will post pics in a few days.

let me know, would be interested sooner rather than later

cant help you being in Australia but i changed my 78 out to a 76 frontend recently i just used 8mm booka rod gq patrol headlight buckets. And got a grill & suround cheap.
otherwise you could go as far as change the radiator support.
as some holes won't line up for the grill surround.
