Chuck, the clips on 73 and up were a dark blue. The lighter blue clips were on the 70-71 cars. Not sure about 72 as the change may have occured sometime in the 72 model run. Rick might have an idea as to when the change occured.
Mike, thanks for clarifying the legends guidelines. Your explanation of the difference between having a car certified and having it judged is very well stated also.
The time and commitment that you and the other judges give to this hobby is very much appreciated by many. Thanks!
Does a Legends certification verify that the car has it's original "born with" drivetrain intact? Can a car with a restoration engine, or wrong transmission still score high enough to be awarded a Legends certification? Maybe one of the judges could clarify this.
I believe the brackets were bolted on the body before it was dipped in red oxide on Norwood cars. Brackets should be red oxide with body color overspray on them. Rubber was installed later. Not certain about LA cars.
