1973 pinto wagon rearend and quarters?!?!?
« on: November 14, 2011, 07:12:17 PM »
just got to looking at this wagon i got and the axle code is a 7, would that be the same as a 74 when decoded?? a 3.40???  and are my eyes going bananas or is the quarter panels on a 73 wagon different from a 77??? when i look at them that ones on the 77 in the wheel well are really bubble looking and round, the 73 have a really sharpe edge and look the same size but that edge looks totally different!!!

I was wondering the same about the quarter panels. I have seen those minute differences but have never been 100% certain since I have no late model wagons to compare Brownie against.

Anyone else know?
