i looked at some of the pics of gen 1 cars and the brochures in the old gallery, and i can't seem to find any others with it. anyway, my question is, is the trim on my wagon(rubber bumper style) stock, a dealer add-on, or something someone rivited on later on.

It was a popular add on in those days. If you look at the cars in the brochures, none of them have the trim. I believe it was put on by most dealers when the cars were new, but could have been put on by anyone.

I like the trim, it serves it purpose well. My car accumulated only a couple door dings in its 20+ years with the trim on.

and remember, you guys restoring the old ones, if you need the decals for the bottom of the doors like you have, I should be able to do them rather easily..... :)

Ok not to threadjack, but what type of GM B-body car is that in the background of the last pic? I was thinking '70 Chevelle but the grille and bumper look odd.


Good luck with the paint on the wagon, should look real good when it's all done. :D
