There was a style change between those years, but as long as you do the whole front clip and hood you can do it.

Good luck,

Ditto. The hood is different in the front. It might fit, but the lines are a little different.

The radiator supports are different between those body styles also.

You will need the whole front clip and hood.The inner fenders,rad support,
radiator,hood,rad shroud,head light covers,grill trim,bumper and of course the fenders are different.Also remember that the wheel openings are a different
shape compared to the 1987 and up body style.
