You will find both opening diameter and "overhang" of the headlight surround to be different between up to early 72 and 72-73 grilles.

For parts hunting reference here's the measuremants:

early type inner diameter is 168mm
later type inner diameter is 187mm

early type "overhang" is 45mm
later type "overhang" is 30mm

I think they can be swapped back and forth, providing the "eyebrow" around the light is removed for the late style grill install.

These are both metal grilles - not to be confused with the 74 and later plastic type.

Hope this helps!
