I am looking at buying a 66 Mustang convertible I am comparing two cars, claimed to be complete restorations - but both have wrinkles in the sheet metal under the hood, where the top of the front fenders are attached. Is there any reason this would happen, other than if the cars were involved in an accident ?

Thank you for your thoughts.

Just a quick glance at those two pics I don't see anything that stands out. But next time, get a close up pic of the area of concern so we can see what you see. Those parts are stamped out of sheet metal bent, stretched and shrunk into a 3d piece all with just a quick few hits on a press, distortion is going to happen.
