Back in the day....a windshield washer was standard regardless if you wanted one or not when exiting the NYC side of the Midtown Tunnel
and usually with a dirty squeegee. If you paid then you got a clean windshield and if not then you were left with dirty water on the glass   Cheesy

 I suspect in this case it's the rear panel contour that is causing the gap and not the lamp housing themselves.

Dave,

 On my restored 67 convertible done in the mid-80's I had this exact problem on the passenger side with original and reproduction tail lamp housings. Three touch the panel and the 4th lower right corner stood out by almost 1/4" and the gasket didn't hide it as much as I wanted it to and that is with the original rear panel. To minimize the gap I used body solder to fill the gap and smoothed and feathered it with a body file. So it may not be a bad panel but more of the typical fit nuances of mass production.

 Those pictures are one heck of a fine example of what an original undercarriage finish is instead of the all black show paint jobs.

 Not meaning add to your fears (well maybe...) if the body mounts are that bad then I suspect the metal contact under them may be rusted q lot and if too much then the rubber mount can eventually push through the chassis and you'll have sag. There are repair kits sold to weld in round plates where the mounts sit on the chassis rails. You also want to inspect where the rubber meets the floor boards to make sure it not rusting in that direction. Like others have said, if you don't address this now you will likely so soon afterwards.

 Did Chevy use actual stencils back then or was the tape applied free hand using some guide stencil. I ask this because even though the assembly manual lists stencil, why would they show gap measurements between the thin and wide lines if a stencil was used. In my mind I would think one stencil would have the 3 stripes in a common base for lay, press, peel back and spray so all the dimensions would be automatically in place. I understand having starting edge references though.
Anyhow...I was able to reach up top of the lift and take a closeups of the stripe end on the 67 4B LOS and as you can see it ends at the bumper top with the bottom edge following the fender curve so the front rise showing upwards gives the illusion the bumper is curved downwards (notice the edge bleeding under the front thin stripe...so much for mass production). Excuse the dry and crazed original paint....the old girl is showing her age. As much as am hesitant I may document every inch and then just restore.

 They don't have dates but some vendors are offering that service to etch a date in (so I am told).

Daniel,
  What is that the tire is sitting in as shown in the first picture?

 Thanks for looking.
I am talking to a vendor who is making exact copy tags for Pontiac and he will be looking at the cost to get a 'U' font. Otherwise the tag body edges are exact for 67.

I have an original 67 4N LOS car with the original stripe if interested. I can post pictures.

Seeing the starter listed as a separate item in the assembly manual I would assume the date may very well be past the engine assembly date and before the body date on the cowl tag.

I have 1 or 2 67 tags What code do you need
I need a UN (3013684) and if you have a UO (3013685) that would great.

 Has anyone seen an accurate reproduction 67 radiator tag with the stepped edges instead of the straight edge commonly seen for sale?
I don't mind paying good money as long as the reproduction is accurate but so far I haven't seen a correct copy.

Thanks,
Mike
