    Actually 72-74 all had the huge tits. some of the early 72's received 70 and 71 bumpers without the tits. Over the many years a lot of folks have replaced their 2-4 bumpers with earlier styled bumpers. It's not just barracuda's and challengers either. B bodies got these hideous things. At least chargers did.
    The wing was not available 2-4. And the barracuda emblem is on the wrong side (I believe and will confirm) of the rear panel on both those. And the aar stripe was not available in those years either. The front bumper on the purple one is the earlier style bumper also.
    It's quite difficult to decipher the difference's between 2-4's. There are a few subtle difference's but without detailed pictures it's hard to tell the difference's.

    They simply removed the front bumper guards, the rears leave a hole so you would need to replace them with the earlier style. The Bump in the pan was to make room for the spring hangers.

    I removed those bastards from my '73 Imperial and filled the holes with stainless carriage/bumper bolts.... Like it never happened.

    There's something about seeing a vintage car on the road and amongst the daily drivers that makes it special regardless of make and sometimes condition. My eyes glaze over after a row or two at a car show. They don't seem as special when the are showcased in a field of hundreds. Maybe its just me.

    It sounds bad, but that's how I was at Carlisle. I was looking for specific cars mainly, so I skipped over most everything that wasn't a C body.

    Looks like a 73 or 74 LeSabre.

    I'm not well versed on the difference between the lesabre, century or centurion...however, I did like this one. Not surprised if it is a 73. I love just about everything from the early 70's.

    That’s probably because all the cars today are the same. They’re the same size, they look the same, and drive the same. Read the comparison articles in the car magazines. The articles are the same too. It always comes down to the size of the screen and differences only the person writing the article would bother with. Unless you shell out the dough for a ‘Vette or a Hellcat, or some other 700hp monster, they’re all soulless, blobs with no character.
