and I mean a LOT of time, I had never before today, 49 years later almost to the day, seen one of these dealer tags! :ohmy:

Unbelievable: An excellent example of why one should never assert that something was or was not done; I'da bet a few dollars Childers never had dealer tags! ;) BP

Looks like the body tag streamer says AIR COND. With the mounting hole in the wrong end. Or more likely: the blank with hole oriented the wrong way inserted in the stamping machine.

That's just to drain the water out of those (formerly) sealed up quarter panels. :woot:
