Have an 81 dodge van, looking at buying a 76 camper for body parts, will fenders, hood, etc bolt on?

79+ is what you need. Yours is a completely different body style. Google image search to find the immediate differences.

Dodge aren't as interchangeable as the g series vans. I wished they were.got an 85 and 86 dodge but if anything you might score a good drivetrain


When in doubt..get the sawzall out..

I know for certain the front clip won't directly bolt on but the doors are iffy. But hey our brothers that were vanning in the 70's was putting Cordoba noses on dodge vans..lol I think the footwell and all was longer on 79 up for crash safety

Front doors maybe, side doors definitely do not, they changed the hinges and the design of the rear door shape, back doors may work but I think the hinges may be different. Rear bumper should work, they used the same bumper until 85, but fronts are different. Hood and front fenders are all very different. The only year that earlier body style shared certain items was 78. Basically the dash back it was all the same as 79+ but the front clip was still all the old design.

Key word was “bolt on”

FWIW, if you have an 81, that body style was made until 93. You’ll have way more luck finding stuff for it in 79-93 era. Note that bumpers/grill changed in 85. Subtle differences but usually when things change, parts aren’t a direct “bolt on” to the old style.
