    Is there any rear valances that are the same as a 71 dart ? Mines rusted badly

    If you have a '71 Dart then a '70 Dart should be the same. Those two years of Darts are nearly identical in features. One difference I can think of this the rear bumper. The number of tail light openings is different from year to year.

    As far as I know the rear valance should be the same from 70 to 73 Darts and Valiant/Scamp. May be some slight variations but I think it's basically the same piece.

      I don't have a solid answer for you on that. My car is a '71 Dart Swinger and through my rebuild I have discovered that many parts from the '70 Darts are interchangeable with the '71 Darts. I also know some of the parts from the Scamp, Darts, and Valiant are interchangeable through each other as well. They are basically the same car with a few cosmetic differences. Sometimes it makes a big difference if the car is a two door or four door too depending upon what you are talking about.

      It seems to me that '68-'69 cars were similar. '70-'71 cars were very similar. '72-'73 were similar. It's almost like Dodge/Chrysler made parts for two consecutive years and after two years they changed things up a bit.

      I can tell you for fact that front disc brakes from a '74 Dart will fit my '71 Dart that had drum brakes. I removed the entire front suspension and converted it. Control arms and all. I'm not sure if this is helping you or not.
