Just noticed today that there is no torque box on the right side of my 67 fastback. Did early 67 not have them? There is no marks at all that would suggest that it had one at any time. Planning on putting one in any ways, but just checking that it wasn't suppose to have one and not that someone on the assembly line goofed up.

Thanks for the quick response! I thought I had read that somewhere. Is there any reason not to add one to the right side?

Unless you are planning on adding a lot of HP and romping on the car there really is no need to bother adding it. It survived this long without one didn't it?

67 only has LH torque box. 68 had both
Any one know why they put one on the LH side?
I mean if the LH needed one why didnt the RH?

What side do you sit on when you drive your car?
