TEMPORARY SUBSTITUTION AUTHORITY 1133
This TSA authorized a test of affixing the hood seal - normally attached to the hood - to be attached to the body for a run of 10 cars. This was carried out in June of 1981 - probably between VIN 01682 and 02215. Do you have one of these ten cars with the hood seal on the body, rather than the hood? We'd love some photos to illustrate this! Contact us!
