Camaro and T/A interchangeable parts?

Does anybody know for sure what can be interchanged between the camaro and the T/A? I am looking at a 88 GTA that needs both front fenders replaced. I have found plenty of camaro parts through local listings. Can the camaro and GTA front fenders interchange? Also can the center consoles interchange. The camaro parts are all from a 88 Iroc Z28. Any help would be appreciated, I am eagerly looking forward to my first Trans Am.

No, none of those parts interchange.

Ok thanks, I thought that was the case but I just wanted to ask somebody that knew more than me. Appreciate it.

No problem. The fenders have the wrong curve to them and would sit way high in the nose area. The center consoles are nothing like as the Camaros center console are 1 piece while the Firebird have a seperate pod for the HVAC and radio.

Re: Camaro and T/A interchangeable parts?

I've scrapped my IMSA repliracer project Firebird but kept the fiberglass fenders for use on my 84 Camaro.

The rear fenders can be easily modified by cutting out triangular sections where the Camaro tail lights wrap around.

My question is how different are the Firebird and Camaro front fenders?

I'm pretty sure they're the same from the doors forward at least to the top of the wheel openings. Do the Firebird fenders slope down more steeply toward the nose after that? In a perfect world, my Firebird fenders will match up perfectly with the Camaro nose. Otherwise, I'll have to break out the fiberglass kit.

TIA for all inputs!

Oh, well...

I dug out the fiberglass fender and answered my own question. Here's the pic:

Kind of confused on your actual question, but you do realize that the rear does not have fenders?
Its a unibody, the rear is all one big piece. Modifying it is possible, but lots of work.

Re: Camaro and T/A interchangeable parts?

The only interchangeable body parts are all the internal stuff (engine bay, cowl, floors,...), the roof, the doors and the deck lid and the glass of course.
The wheel arches are different, the quarter panels are different, the tail panel is different.

You can put an entire Camaro front end on a Firebird but it would look out of place with the different wheel arches.

So basically the only readily interchangeable body parts are the doors and the rear hatch.
