Had a moron hit me head on. Header panel is in crumb form, front fenders are buckled in & steel bumper bar is bent. Found a body shop with an abandoned cougar, same year as mine (95). Said I can take what I need for $75 then it's getting scraped.
Will the fenders swap?

Fenders will, yes.

Are you going to get the front tub straightened by a frame shop first?

I'd HIGHLY recommend it; after the shop resquared the 1991 Cougar, it tracks and drives even better than before the minor fender bender four years ago (!!)

Fenders, bumper, rad support, and front frame rails are all the same. The foam bumper absorber, bumper cover, hood, grille, header panel, and headlights are different. The corner lights are the same. I would suggest getting the bird in a body shop, torn down, and on a frame machine first so you know exactly what you need before they junk the Cougar.
