What's the difference between the 70-72 quarter panel and the one for a 73?

J&D Corvette makes body panels.

I'd guess that factory parts are no longer available. Maybe 2-3 years ago, I was at J&D and they had a Coupe ready to paint. The shop manager said they had constructed it with all new NOS body panels. He said as far as he knew they were no longer available.

Just to mention that there is a rather significant difference between early/chrome sharks and later ones, not sure when the change took place, but in the front and rear there is about 1-2" plus of fender width.....years ago a friend showed up with a late shark in my driveway and with the two cars side by side, it became very apparent.....his was a bone stock car, never touched, mine is an old custom....that alerted me to something which was substantiated by viewing later sharks, and a tape measure.....

front and rear....the change is not something the typical eyeball going to see easily.....

Pro-Touring, just remember a 73 corvette is SMC (Sheet Molded Composite), this requires special resin like Evercoat SMC resin.
