      Mine is a 67 and if i cant find a decent pass. side surround I am going to install the 66 set up I have on a shelf until I find one. The 67 as mentioned has headlights that set further out and use a separate headlight bucket setup. The 66 bucket are tack welded to the core support the 67 come in a separate bracket that screws into the lower support behind the top of the bumper. The 67 also uses a different cross bar and hood trim than a 66. You will also need to have a 67 bumper or other custom provisions for blinkers.

          No.....not at all. lol. What I did was I swept the fender noses back to 90 degree angles and replaced the Coronet lower grill mounting bar with a 67 Charger one so the bolt holes would be there for the flip headlight frames. That picture is the final mock up to make sure I had it where I wanted it.

              Yep, those puppies are not cheap. I'm sold mine but they don't show up for a decent price often, or if they do they're a mess.
