Front end swap 83 to 82

I picked up an 83 that the price was too good to resist.

the thing is I REALLY love the 82 GT.

is it possible to swap an 82 GT front end onto an 83?

Yes. The hard part will be finding the 82gt parts. 82gt is the same as a pace car or 80-81 cobra, except for the hood scoop.

I don't recall if the cowl vent area changed in 83, but I don't think it did. Personally, the 82gt was probably my favorite too. But 83 was nice. If I had an 83, I believe I would keep it original. My buddy had one and recently sold it. It looked great.
