Yes. Gen1/2 dimensions are narrower and smaller, in & out. :huh:
I know thats what the numbers say but coming from a guy who has owned both. My GenII has much more interior room than my RC R/T. Granted my R/T had buckets and my GenII has a bench. I drove both daily and there is no contest that my GenII is much more comfortable.

You can decide which you like better for yours, I swapped over to clear diamond cut from the smoke lenses:
Diamond Cut All Day. Too Much Black is no good. Although It may look better black if the signals were black also.

Where Can I get some clear Lower lenses for my Shelby? I have a nice set of headlights but I can't find the lenses. Didn't even see them on ebay.

Need some help

I have an 87 short bed with a 4 banger (blew it up), so im swapping it for an 81 318, but my motor mounts are 8 inches further forward on the new block. Any suggestions on where to buy extensions? Or do i just fab my own?

Schumacher ( www.engine-swaps.com ) or fabricate your own. I'm sure there's other places, but Schumacher at least sells them, even if they're normally "Out of Stock".

Or sell that block, buy a Magnum block with Magnum heads, get the heads cross drilled to take the LA manifold, and build that up.

Or, for that much work, drop in a B/RB block (say a 440? 383?) and run with that *grins* Same place for the motor mounts and headers.

Hello boys and girls. Picked up a 90 shorty last week for almost nothing. She has the puny 2.5L with a blown head gasket (possibly head too) with a manny 5spd. I've already made a deal for, and am picking up a 318 from a 99 ram van, along with the harness and ecm for only $140!!! The body will need some TLC but for now the goal is to get the swap done and running, then worrying about more power once I have the kinks worked out. Here are a few pics. Cheers!!!

Hello from Roanoke VA,
I picked up my 93 LE 3.9 auto for $300 back last summer when I moved here from Texas.
Currently looking at grabbing a running 95 318 with harness & ECM & swapping it over
