Like I said I have known this car since it was one year old. Now I am suppose to believe that someone drilled all those holes down the side to put on all that chrome and not bother with doing the hood when it was less than a year old. It had its original paint when I strip it in high school in the mid 70’s. So you can understand why I am never going to believe someone did that to it.

You do realize that the side trim was factory-available on the F-85 convertible under option K-8, right? As the car in the ebay ad Jim linked shows – an F-85 convertible could have been ordered from the factory with the same chrome side trim as a Cutlass (or F-85 Deluxe), but it would have had F-85 emblems, not Cutlass emblems.
