    I am sure you could make it work, but the dash pads did change between 73-80, and 81-87

    yep same deal just differetn shape

    but watch out on vin tag opening, 78 older on door frame,
    79 went to dahs,
    but smaller hole in dahs for tag, 80-up bigger,
    79 and then 80 dash pad are one of a kind

    so at least three different pads made 73-87
