plus you'll need the headlite sections cut out of a set of 68 Coronet fenders to superimpose over the factory Charger units to mount the lights out front for that "frog-eyed" look that the 500 has...

Sweet.  Thanks Day Clona.   I honestly thought there were more pieces.  I have a Talladega Torino and there are literally dozens of special brackets, rods, struts, headlight boxes, seals, etc.  Even mini headlight wire harness extenders.

Oh there's other smaller parts, like the extensions for the outer 68 Coronet grill pcs, the side brackets for the 68 Coronet headlite fender sections, I'm sure I missed a few...

What about the Charger emblem in the grill?  I've been told its the rear emblem off a 68 Charger, but the studs are too short.

The Charger script emblem is not the same on a 69 500,as the 68 Charger tailpanel emblem.  The 68 Charger tailpanel emblem is contoured to fit the inward curvature of the tailpanel, the Charger 500 grille script emblem is flat.

Is the Charger grill emblem a special part then, or is it recycled off another application?
