From road test photos in the 1970s...
Markos, I'll have to respectfully disagree.Thanks for sharing. I think that if you were to examine in person, you would find that the top
of the hump is inline with the gutter, not above.
Markos, I'll have to respectfully disagree.
The last photo I posted clearly shows the hump interrupting the inner gutter line, even from a fairly high angle.
Can you please post some period photo evidence that supports your view?
Realize you're implying that many cars, like the 71 Sahara on BaT, have serious structural issues when they most likely do not.
Chris, on my '72 the insulation rises slightly above the gutter edge on both sides.Mine comes up to top of gutter edge

But I suspect there was some normal variance in this, and I wouldn't imply that anything slightly more, on its own, indicates a serious structural issue.
My tar pads rise slightly above too I think.
Markos, I'm sorry if I misinterpreted your comments in reply to restart's question...I call it inner fender migration and have discussed it in the past. I don’t know what causes it but I wouldn’t be surprised if stiffer struts have something to do with it.
Brought it up here and highlighted in my scary rust video:

restart: "Can anyone speak to this?"

I read that as an implied structural issue to the '71 Sahara on BaT, based on the "humps" rising slightly above the gutter edge.
