I bought a 68 model a few month ago and posted some questions about the car, one that I need to clerify is how can you tell Reproduction sticker from originals, I had took a pic of my tire (glovebox) and Posi sticker and they were called reproductions, I have since talked to and met the owner of the car frome 1977 to 1994 and the stickers were there then, he had a very extensive photo album, were reproduction stickers made for 9 year old cars? how can I tell repo or not
Thanks

The posi "sticker" isn't really a sticker... it was a piece of paper that was hap-hazzardly smeared with glue then stuck onto the inside of the deck lid... so if yours is an actual sticker it is a reproduction...

Photo below shows the original jacking instruction sticker and Posi label on my '69 - note the sloppy positioning and glue job on the Posi label.

Repop stickers have been around since at least the late 70's and very early 80's, Thats over 25-30 years ago!

You can see the difference on the tire stickers.  I can't speak to the posi emblem.

Not to mention that is the first one that I've seen placed in the right "cup holder" on the glovebox door.     Roll Eyes     Huh

There are people who do and so there are people who will try to make money on that assumption, either legally or not.
