Is it possible to 1973 bumpers on the same posts that hold the 1974 bumpers?

1974 Opel Manta Luxus

And does anyone have a spare set of either year?

I do not believe so. The early Mantas use brackets, while the later ones have big bumper shocks. You'd have to pull out the shocks and fabricate custom brackets. I think the sheetmetal is a little different too.

Correct, it can be done (either way, small to big or big to small), but will require custom fabrication to do so. Did a few years ago, and I will be changing a 1975 Manta to small bumpers soon.....
