They also acid dipped the body's on the Thunderbolt's to lighten them up. I don't think they moved it as much as they did on the dodges. But I seem to remember the true thunderbolt's had this done. If it was done right it wouldn't look that bad. And just a few inches would make a huge differnce in the way it hooked up. Thanks Bill
Huge difference in Stovebolt and a Thunderbolt.
