Yes - but you would need the more of the under the facia parts to really do it right - including the bottom parts of the fascia etc- or be prepared to modify some parts to get it right.

The plastic honeycomb absorber behind the fascia is not shown for some reason.
It would be best if you remove everything you need from a parts car yourself.

Are you converting the car over to smooth trim?

If you're staying with ribbed trim, the 84 Indy / 85 GT / 86 SE / 87 SE front bumper looks similar to the 86-88 GT bumper, but it has ribbed trim.

Also a better chance to find one of these as a parts car (other than the Indy).

No matter which different "bumper" you swap onto an '84, there's going to some "stuff" required besides the nose itself. A base '87-'88/Formula nose swapped onto an '84 will at least require the specific egg-crate material and air dam. The plastic wheel well liners are also different dependent on which "bumpers" are installed. As mentioned previously by fierosound, it would be best if you were to remove everything you need yourself from a donor car.

87/88 rear bumpers are smooth trim. Watch thatr or it will look funny

You may also need wheel Wells for the front and you need the front blinker spacers when converting to the aero nose.

The wheel well liners for the GT nose are different. Close to the same wheel liner as on the notch back but with a small added piece stapled in place on the front bottom. The small side trim piece is also different 86-88 but most of the time it stays on the facia when it is removed.
