Hi everyone -
I am in the process of restoring my 66 Hertz Car that I have had for 30 years. It is not a concours resto but I want it to be as correct as possible. I have posted some questions on other forums that have not been answered.
Is there anyway to determine Ford bumper guards - I don't know if mine are original or not?
Would Hertz cars have the short or long base Rotunda mirror ?
Does anyone know what the attached photos of markings on the car mean?
TIA for your help and dedication to the hobby-
As mentioned, the assembly line bumper guards are marked "R" and "L"...note that this is for the fronts. Ford NOS parts and reproductions will not be marked. If you choose to have them rechromed, make sure someone will do the job without filling or polishing out the letter.
Here is a picture of one (it's stamped on the bottom...not the greatest picture):
The outside mirrors are considered "short base". As far as I know, the "long base" version was created by the reproduction market to cover the holes if a standard outside mirror was previously used.
