I noticed the taillight housing spacers are not on this car, they are not on my unrestored 66 either and there are no marks in the paint that would lead me to believe they were ever there. Does it seem to be common they were left off of NJ cars?

Will have to look at more pictures to see if we have a pattern. 2 cars is IMHO not enough to make that assumption


Passenger side all studs and nuts with paint. Possibly the worker mixed passenger and drivers side up when doing final assembly?

Noticed the same thing and have not seen this before (not sure how you mix one side with another - but that would explain what we're seeing on this particular car

I got docked at my first MCA show for that, they recommended I add them, but I am not going to do it as you can tell they were never there. My FB was built at the NJ plant April 15th btw.

Sorry, that was your text from the original post in between the pics I should have removed that. Mine don't look like that. the studs have paint but not the nuts.


Also I checked my carpet while getting the car ready for the grand national show this week, it is the same as of your example with non sewn edges at the firewall and the qtr panel


Also take a look at my  trap door arm attachment point under the car. The inserts are there but if you notice they missed the insert on one with one of the screws.

Unfortunately nothing done at NJ plant surprises me :(

Always happy to receive more pictures. I you want to figure out how you want to get them to me let me know. Owners from around the world have been very kind and have sent hundreds of pictures of their unrestored cars during disassembly or just current condition using CD. DVDs or online photo albums \\Thanks for thinking of me

A quick question, the car appears to have a passenger side torque box ?
I thought only convertibles had them in '66 ?

If your referring to the pictures in reply #3 - those were posted by another member to illustrate a point in the discussion and not from 6T09C2860xx ;)
