Where or what is this picture of?
« on: February 07, 2018, 03:34:52 PM »
 Looking at the body shape, it appears to be a '68 F-body.
Does anyone know where this was or was it a special line to be spraying the body (done usually at Fisher) and the buck-mounted nose (painted on the Chevy side)? The dash top definitely looks masked.

Just curious,
Mike

Jim,
  The side markers started in '68.

So, I wonder if the 'buck' John Z was referring to that held the front sheet metal during spraying at the Chevy side is the style pictured.

Thanks for the tips on where the picture came from!
