I think Jim's comments are spot on. Many Federal cars did not have side moulding installed. My current JH never had it installed and never had the dealer black paint below either. Logically, the factory would attempt to standardize that sort of thing for cost savings. I've never seen a home-market car with moulding, black paint below or side marker lights (also a Federal market item). Period correct and esthetics are more important than so-called factory correct. I think the original luggage rack and Dunlop wire wheels are neat, just because the car didn't leave the factory with them doesn't mean they are any less cool.
