Will a '76 Charger roof fit cleanly on a '74 Charger?

    I found a fairly cheap '76 roof in a yard locally and I need to address rusty roof issues on my '74 SE (had a sunroof so it's pretty rusty). I think the answer to this question is "no" but I wonder if anyone has solid compatibility info?

    It's close.

    At least the front is.

    I'm interested in seeing it as well.

    I think you are WAY better off finding the right repair panel. A roof isn't a part that most people need, so you should be able to find one

    Wheels of Terror, your inbox is full.... I was gonna suggest you contact Turners Auto Wrecking in Fresno.... They still have allot of old cars & they don't stack cars... We have a local yard that has allot of old cars & I know they have a couple 72-74 Chargers but they stack them so the roofs are junk...

    Oh, man thanks for the suggestion- I'll look them up tomorrow.
    Also- thanks for the head's up on the inbox- I didn't realize BBO capped our mail at 15 messages

      Buddy swapped a T top Magnum roof onto his Cordoboat back in the day. It worked well.
