Check out the rear reflector. Never seen that done before.

Early rear quarters with late style rear reflectors. Somebody must have wondered why that didn't fit right wihen they put them on wouldn't ya think? That gap in the door he mentions looks like a damage repair and a poor one at that. The paint looks wrinkled too. All in all however, a nice looking car.

Yes, This is because it has an indash tach. The speedometer was equiped with the trip odometer when the tach was ordered. Mike

Did`nt they cut a hole in the rear quarter panel for those early rear reflectors?

Rhonda;
Actually the panel's were stamped with the indentation for the reflectors to fit into and not cut.

Here is a pic of the rearview mirror in this CS. It looks like the mirror is mounted from the frame on a stalk. My mirror is glued to the glass with a short stalk. Is there some variation in mounting locations in 68's?

That is a '67 mirror. I had one on my old GT/CS. Don't have to worry about them getting pulled off the windshield.
