Hood itself is the same from 71-73, just the center molding is different, (wider) on the 73s.

Headlight brackets are the same for all, but the two upright hood latch brackets are different on the 73s since they have the big, huge crash bumper to deal with and the shorter (both top and bottom) center grille.
