    I'll try to remember to measure my Dad's 73 and compare it to my '72 over the holiday, I'll post it unless you get a response before I get back Tues.

    I measured the width of the front bumber on Dad's '73 k5 (eyeballing it looked like that was the widest part of the "body"-tires stick out more) and it was about 80" (+/- 1/2"). According to my sales brochure, the width of the Gen1 is 79". Therefore pretty similar. Good luck!
