I know the '65 and '66 fastbacks don't have the rear quarter trim on them as the coupes do (beneath the rear window on the coupe, behind the door), but shouldn't a '68 have it?

Would you say this car has been quartered and the body shop didn't bother to redrill the holes to replace the trim?

Looks like what I did on Trouble. I left the front markers so people would know it was a 68 and not a 67. :winkgrin:

It's had the floors replaced and it's an Illinois car, so it having been quartered would be no big surprise. I'm looking to buy this, so I want to be as informed as possible and I don't know much about '68s at all.

Thanks!
