Maybe we should talk about the 351 C "big blocks".

I love that place.
It's not easy to make one of them, that's for sure.

I would guess that those rear quarter panels only look like stock production fenders.

They are probably fabricated to make sure that the rear tires fit within the fenders with room to spare?

Look at the size of the rear tires. Those are hardly a tire that will fit within the rear fenders of a stock production '69 Boss regardless of what they did with the rear axle housings. You would need to relocate the rear springs to do that and the bottom pictures do not indicate that.

I can personally add that I have 295-50-15's on the rear of my '68 GT350 on 10 spokes that fit but there is a bit of a story on that so I suppose it is possible those are stock fenders on that T/A car but I doubt it?

By the same token, the front fenders are not likely to be stock fenders either but I have about the same tire fender coverage in the front on 235-60-15's?

Redoing factory sheet metal like fenders, is common place for NASCAR and is one of the reasons that NASCAR uses body patterns on cars going through TECH Inspection. The sheetmetal usually is all hand made counterfeits to look stock with "just a few little tweaks" here and there. In other words the teams cheated like crazy on those items.

Just my "educated guess". I can't prove this one way or the other but someone who actually worked on these cars "Restoring" them would have a much better perspective on that, like Phil.  ;)

Actually there is an undercarriage front shot that does show the adjustable ball joint kit installed and hanging out for you to see.

The front fenders and quarters are flared. The rear springs are only 1 3/4" wide to make room for the tires.

I notice that there are no Rear Quarter Marker Lights....... Why?  That would be a lot of work to remove them and weld up the holes.
You missed the front marker lamps and the door lock cylinder holes. The quarters were factory stampings but the front fenders and doors were stamped of thinner metal.
Looking for a power brake pedal for a manual transmission and a clutch pedal for a 69.
In the SAAC registration it says a dinner ticket is not required if you show up after dinner for the evening program. What time does the evening program start? I would like to go to the evening program but not the dinner.
