I assume you're talking about the door to fender gap? That does look really sloppy.

Had I acquired the car I would have done something about it!

I would assume that he's claiming they were not that way from the factory and he's going to make them right?
I didn't know the show was still broadcast.

Good example of what most seem to forget...The panel fitment,paint runs,different color shot on the panel before the correct color came through the gun, etc...Have all been erased in the name of "restoration" these days..There's a tendency to correct the unique flaws each vehicle had...

Imagine all the times a resto owner would have to explain why his fenders fit so lousy after spending a ton of money on it? laugh2

Could the gap been the result of Creative Industries and not Ma Mopar?

Where ever the gap came from, it was there when delivered. I think that is the point being made.

It's a legitimate question. If you don't care for it then disregard it.

Superbirds were built on-line at the Lynch Rd. Detroit, MI B-body assembly plant

modifications were made at Chrysler's Clairpointe "prototype" facility across from the Jefferson Ave. Detroit, MI C-body assembly plant

Creative Industries would be at no fault for this Superbird's panel fit issues

My car has what some people say is an excessive gap at the bottom of door to rocker panel. Both sides of car. Top of doors line up with rear quarter, window trim and front fender. Gap is parallel and the same width on both sides. It's a very early build and certainly was delivered that way, never apart, never wrecked, original paint.

Interesting, so Creative did not do any assembly work on Sbirds?

As far as I know creative supplied assembled nosecones to clairpoint, they did not install them. Fenders were installed on the line, before clairpoint.

Seems people forget that when sold they were cars to drive.Yeah fitment paint etc sometimes left a lot to be desired.I remember going to the dealers when they came in new.Lots of stuff didnt look perfect.The new 66 we had had to go back 3 times for the paint.Rocky

My 71 RR has a gap just like that at the bottom of the door. The bodies flexed, and had to have those kind of gaps.

The only time any "Superbird" (An actual 69 RR was used as the "buck") was at Creative Industries was initial mock up/prototype work
