Just realized something!

Recommended Posts

The reissue of the Chevy Racer's Wedge is boxed as a 72 but the original I have is boxed as a 71. Were any of the originals boxed as a 71 or did they change it with the reissue? My bumpers and the chrome tree are stamped with 71 too.

The minor alterations have a by-product of making it tougher for some less-than-reputable sellers to pass the reissues off as originals.  I can't say that the changes are ever done with that in mind, though.
