Re: '70 Lower headlights mouldings question
Here is what I do know. My 70 SS 454/ M-22 El Camino was ordered in Feb. of 70 by me. It was a Balt built ( 2nd Wk. of March.) I was delivered ( Apr. 3-4 to Sahli Chevrolet in Beaver Falls, Pa.) with the Alum. trim under the headlights.
That Alum. trim is still under the H. Lights, The driver side Alum. is worn a bit on the vertical side near the outside phillips screw. The bumper was touching it for many years. My best guess is......... The Marketing folks at Chevy. were testing the market. " IF " it was a noticeable improvement it would be used on all the units built.
If it did not reach or make the " WOW " factor, The bean counters said NO!
I would guess, Its the same old , Same old.......... It cost to much and it does not sell cars. Other than my guess, I have no idea.
