Re: Original '73 Jimmy with 44k?

Yeah, I'm not buying all original. I don't know about the year of sill plates, but they appear to be on the wrong sides. The hardware on the drivers seat doesn't look original. Is the knap correct on the carpet? I think the rockers would be tell-tale. If it didn't have serious flaps, the rockers would have chips after 44K. That and the front of the hood, too.

Door sill plates are wrong yr. '78-91 plates
350 emblem is off the grille so at least grille has been off.
Spare tire carrier is missing and no sign of it ever being there.
Paint seems like too much orange peel for factory paint and not one spider web swirl from it being washed over the yrs.
Underneath looks like 144k miles.
Maybe its just me but it just doesn't look like a 44k truck. Its nice, just "too" nice to be all original.
