Does anyone know if 36 pickup truck fenders/hood/grille is easily fit onto a 37 or 38 truck?

Not totally sure Scott, but I think the front clip might interchange with the '37 cab. '35-'37 is the same cab, '38 is a different cab, so bolting it all up might not be a direct bolt on. I think the frames are similar in all these years, so it seems like it should be do-able w/o too much work.

Thanks Gary,
I'm wanting to do a 36 style truck and I found a pretty decent 38. I think I'll continue the search for a true 36 or possibly a good deal on a 37. Looking for a complete truck as I don't know enough about them yet to recognize what might be missing! Running would be a plus (especially when convincing the wife), but I can repair or restore anything it would need. The more complete I start with the better.
