Smile 114 bumpers

I found a very nice 114 sedan for sale. Unfortunately it is a 1976 with the ugly bumpers. Is it possible to fit a 1970-1973 114 bumper on a 1976?

Thanks

It can be done, but it will take some work to do it right. The rear should be no big deal, but the front has different x-members, radiator support, and fenders. You could get by with the same fenders by patching the holes for the bumper shocks, but I'm almost certain you'll need the old style x-members.
