If the fit of original bumper to quarter panel is off, why would you want to look at a pic with an aftermarket quarter? It's either going to be better, worse or the same fit.

I'm not understanding what the issue is here.. The relationship of the bumper to the quarter in your first picture looks to be more-or-less the same relationship on my original car. Are you trying to fix a non-problem?

I don’t think the OP fully understood your pictures and comment?

These were cheaply built, mass produced, throw away cars, assembled with large tolerances,.......

The outer edge of the bumper trailing-inward from the quarter panel as it approaches the valance is an original characteristic of all 65-66 Mustangs. All of the 65-66's in our collection (1,300-mile '65, 19,000-mile '66 GT350 and 270,000 mile '66 fastback, my sister's first car lol..) have the same characteristic. It's not a flaw, it's not something to fix, it's just the way the bumper tooling worked out. For 1967, Ford did a much better job with the bumper following the contour of the quarter. Here's a pic of the Shelby..
