    A direct fit after a little massaging of the mounting bracket holes. The Champion Line up looks great too....

    Damn I learn something new everyday ! I did some research for you n I came up with a part # of 3673819 fits 73 to 74 b body. Jim's Auto advertises a used one for 169.95 , and Blue Star Performance advertises a used one for 100.00. It seams no one is reproducing this shroud . Hope this helps, Bob
