64.5 convertible, I had to slot out the centering hole for the rear shock axle plates and massage the rear axle to the left about 3/16 of an inch. Now I find the same thing on my daughter's 64.5 coupe which is off center between nearly 5/16 of an inch to far to the right. I will have to move this to the left also about 5/32 of an inch. Running 205x55x16 on a 7 X 16 wheel with 4.25 back spacing leaves no room for error so there is no tire rub.
I have most of the history of both cars and cannot find any major body damage. Is this normal for these cars or do I have a couple of anomolies? The pictures only show a 1/4" off but two other measurements show 5/16".

Mine isn't centered either. You have to remember these were not precision assembled and we're thrown together as fast as Ford could. Typical car life was excited to be around 10 years.
