Here's a photo of what's on my car.  The photo is of the left side, forward wheel well.

My  72, 73, both 74's had the black molding sandwiched between the chrome with the strip ending to form a point at each end of the car.  I have even sold sets of this that I removed from parts cars.  The 73 has a chrome looking strip of the same shape but is solid and not a sandwiched design just below the door.  I have seen a few cars come with this strip below the doors and many with the trim in the center of the doors and fenders.

My '73, sn11210, came to me as a repo from Cook County (Chicago) Ill.  I am apparently the second, or at most, the third owner.  Anyway, 11210 had no trim on the sides or sills.  No undercoating on the sills, no snaps to hold the top/cover down, a crashed 4-speed and seriously folks, a bullet hole in the front right quarter about mid-way between the 'J' crest and the top of the quarter.  Original color was 'mustard' with two  different reds over the original.

Well,,  let's see.  I doubt 11210 shipped that way, so,, dealer installation or normal wear and tear?  If the bullet hole was part of the repo effort, is that wear and tear or a financial incentive?  You decide.

I used to have a 1956 Dodge pickup truck with two .30 caliber rifle bullet holes in the side of the bed.  I always thought they added character to the beast.  Rather than fixing them, I just painted the truck in a very effective camouflage pattern.
