FYI Kustomags are different than Keystone Klassics.

Ran across a vintage photo of the ‘68 that I haven’t seen before.  Photo’d are my parents and my older brother and sister.  Around the fall of ‘68.



I've noticed in the first original picture's, that there were not any wheel opening mldg's. as the pictures went, they were added.  Do you think, wheel opening trim was an "option"?  I also noticed that there wasn't an antenna. did it have a radio, I've seen on my convertible (upon replacing the quarters no hole/ and a plug in the right front cowl panel, where a radio antenna would be...I'm just wondering?

The latest 'vintage' pic also shows it was not built with Style Trim-no belt moldings.

The car was not ordered with style trim.  You can see this in the very first post in the thread.  It also was not ordered with a spoiler but was again added in the early ‘80’s as was the trim.  Wheel well trim and revel trim were a part of the style trim option (Z21 in 68) (vinyl top cars got the gutter trim standard).  Rear antenna was an option for non spoiler cars but was not standard.  This car was ordered with U63, U73 & U80.

As the owner of a non style trim ‘68 L78, I considered adding it, but decided I really liked the cleanliness of the ‘baseline’ trim. Great car Darrell.
