They look the same in some of the pics, any idea if most of these parts are interchangeable?

according to my interchange, dodge bumper is 51-53 [#193] and desoto bumper is 52-53 [#188]
not sure what the differance[s] would be in allowing the assembly to bolt up. the pics i have show the guards to be different and the bumpers themselves have a different curvature in the face. hope this helps some.

I was thinking of picking it up this afternoon if it's in good shape. I was just curious about the bumpers becasue I can't find one for a 52 but have a line on some dodge 52 bumpers and didn't know if it was one of those b-body situations where i could throw a bumper from RR on a coronet even though it's not the right bumper knowing it'll fit

as a rough guess, i would say go for it. i'm thinking they should bolt up, but they are slightly different in looks. can you get the rear too ? you may have to drill or slot the frame mounting holes, or mix-n-match mounting brackets. i'm pretty sure the overall length & curvature will be pretty close. let us know how you make out.

Found out the floor boards were replaced and now he doesn't have a price listed, just a make me and offer ta the end of the ad. Sounds like some people showed up and found some probs and now he's willing to deal but I'm not in the mood for a rot box project
