    If you are going or thinking of buying a car & if all possible go look at. Do not go by pictures if you can. Pictures hide a lot bad & good body work.

      That looks no different then what the original factory look did 50 years ago, so what's your point?

        My point is- whether your buying or selling pictures do not show how the car really is. I have a car that im trying to sell & from what ive been told the gaps in the pictures are way to wide. They are all around 3/16 to 1/4 wide. By the way I have uncles & my dad that bought new cars in the 60s & 70s & they have told me that the gaps were terrible from the factory O & the car in the picture is up on jack stands

            TOO. The word is spelled TOO. Not to !
            Why do so many people screw up a three letter word?

                    Factory seams on an untouched car. Not even the same side to side. Some are more and 1/4”. 9C9E1792-1BF6-481E-8E17-D49A52AE58E5.jpeg

                        Having sold several vehicles on the web sometimes the photos do make the car look nicer than it is - seems that has more often been the case with interior pics and of course illumination/angles make a diff. I recall the days of closing time at bars when the lights went on...that gal or three I'd had an eye on the past few hours ahh looked a lot different! Kinda the reverse of the tune 'the girls all look prettier at closing time' or just needed a few more beers yet I guess. Ok, don't ask what they mighta thought of me under the bright lights..

                          Nope! If it was concourse correct, the line would look like crap like they did one day one, not just with width along the line, but with it also not being flush with the rest of the body!

                            Re: post #13
                            Wow! Someone else that’s heard of Trooper!
                            I saw them five different times in the early ‘80’s. Awesome live band, iconic Canadian tunes.
                            Not trying to derail the thread, but there were a bunch of Canadian bands of that era that never seemed to hit it big internationally. Prism, Streetheart, Goddo, Doucette, Chilliwack, Toronto etc.
                            The sounds of my generation.
                            But to get back to the original thread...
                            Unless a person is doing (or has paid for) a high dollar restoration, those gaps are fine. If my streeter Super Bee ends up as good as that I’d be a happy man.

                                How about leaping on the people who use 'then' when they should be using 'than' :poke:

                                I was so hoping for someone to say they were "sailing there car". :lol:

                                  If I sail you a car it will have to do just that to get there from here, but it will cost if it's a sail or sale. :):):)
