change hood style on 220seb

my seb is a non 'low grill' car...........is it possible to change the hood / grill to the 'low grill' one, without any further modification?

i'm not really sure what the differences are bodywise between the low grill and the normal (i presume 'high grill' models).

thanks.

Low grill

The low grill was introduced with the 1970 3.5 coupe. I believe you would have to change at least the fenders, hood and bumper. I don't know if the radiator support is different. I would suggest getting a low grill and high grill car side by side and compare. You might post a thread asking if anyone has done this before.

The low hood started somewhere in 69 when they ran out of the early style. The previous poster is correct. You will have to change the fenders and probably the rad support.
