    They both look good but I like the 70-71 better... I got lucky, my 72 dart was built in August of 71, and it has the 71 grille from the factory!

    The "E" rhymes with 73 that's all.

    I've got a 72 that's just fine but the 70/71 has to get my vote, it's sweet.

    The 70/71 looks much cleaner. But I am going a matte black and I have a 72 grille so I don't have to mess up my good 71 grille. WIN... WIN

    I've got a '72 with the original grille, but it's so busted up that I'm going to use my 71 grille. I voted 70-71.

    Most of the "70-71" grilles in the pictures are 71 only grilles and I like them best for sure. They have the black out verticle pieces where the 70 grilles have silver verticle pieces

    Got to say 70-71 are my favourite. But lean to 71 more.

    I've thought about this before, and I think, and this is my opinion, that if the 72 grille came out in 70 71 a lot of people would prefer it, 72 anything mopar just has a stigma of being not as good, just because it was the start of the low compression cars, i know a lot of guys that think that anything after 71 is garbage. Personally I think the 72 grille is a whole lot cleaner, IMO the 70 71 fronts look goofy from some angels.

    I'm gonna catch a lot of flak for saying that haha

    I've always liked the 70-71. I think the 71 paint scheme is used most because its easier to mask! I do think the 1971 grill looks a lot meaner and I'm torn between doing mine 1970 or 1971 style..

    My next fav is 1969 followed by 68.
