Trunk Side Boards, How Can You Tell Older vs Newer Ones?

No camera on that smart phone, Justin?

 

You say trunk "side boards," as in the boards that stand vertically, protecting the quarter panels, not as in trunk "floor boards," which lie horizontally over the spare tire and fuel tank.  But is that what you mean?  I can't say I'm aware of differences among these "side boards" but I'd bet one photo showing two different side boards would illustrate your question!  And we could proceed from there.

 

Regards,

The late roundie side boards have a cut out for the bolts on the longer bumper ends    The early side boards do not     Made several of each this last spring for my 1600 project and for friends    HTH

So it looks like you have two "late" side board sets -- given that 1973 is the last U.S. model year to use them.  Are there any other differences between your sets, other than the missing fitment tabs on the upper set?
