Will any '68 parts work?

I've found a 68 442 (no pictures yet) and would like to know if any parts will fit on my 69 442. I'm mainly interested but may buy the whole car depending...

Depends on which parts you are talking about and what the two body styles are.

Thanks Joe
Maybe the doors (assuming it's a post) but mainly the frame. Also Maybe the booster/cylinder and evaporator box (I doubt that's the right name)

Frames are the same. Post doors are the same (well, not quite sure about the lock **** location on post doors). Firewall and everything on it is the same (though a 69 will have an internal regulator, a 68 has the external regulator on the firewall). Inner fenders are the same. Floor pan is the same. Suspension and brakes are the same except that the optional disc brakes were four piston calipers in 68 and single piston in 69. Drivetrain is essentially the same. Dash pad is the same EXCEPT that all 69 hardtops and converts used the A/C pad even with non-A/C due to the upper vents. Post cars with out A/C used the same pad without the vent holes. Roof is the same Glass is the same (excepting the HT/convert door glass). The rest of the sheet metal is different.
