I believe the body shells use the second-generation tooling (68-74), so that
it would be difficult to install a 67 dash; but ask Kelvin. The running gear
shouldn't be any problem, as you can get the parts for almost any
combination; but a matched engine and transmission (of whatever vintage)
would make it simpler.
