    ‘68 LeSabre/Electra part interchangeability

    So I drive a 1968 Buick LeSabre and recently the front end was backed into. I’ve been wondering while searching for parts if I could use pieces from a ‘68 electra, hood, grille, bumper, etc. to replace mine with. Do they have the same size of hood and are they interchangeable?

    Parts book shows the bumpers are the same.

    The grille halves are different cosmetically, but should swap. Overall car body widths are the same. So are the grille support parts.

    The hoods are different. The Electra 225 hood has a front-to-back top molding that is not used on the LeSabre. Also the hood hinge springs are different. There was a considerable price difference as well. This tells me the Electra hood is longer and likely won't work. It would be good to check the hood length before buying.
