Thank you for the reply, I just wanted to be sure before I started stockpiling parts for this project. Got my 302 for it already, probably go with a mild cam in it, intake and headers etc
My next issue is that I don't have a trunk key and want to see if it has any of my missing trim pieces in it

Yours looks like a 73 ,71 -72 front fenders are different ,73 is by its self . You can use 71 -72 fenders if you also use the front valance ,bumper and fender extensions .
69 front sheet metal will not fit

if you are looking to just bolt on the 69 front end, the answer is no, it wont fit. however, if you are willing to do some(read a whole bunch) of surgery, then you can make the 69 front end fit the 71-73 mustangs.

I dont know ,fenders and hood are longer on a 71 73 ,would be more work than most would want to take on . Just the body line from the 71 -73 would be a very big task . I would find the correct front end . There is a couple on face book market place now

i am not saying that it would only take a little surgery to make them work, far from it. but given the things i have sen people do with body panels from wildly different ars and make them work, i am only saying it can be done. not something i would recommend doing though.
