    My passenger inner fender just above wheel well is stamped out on 1970 RS Camaro. Appears to be factory but I've never seen another one like it. Anyone know why?

    You have a late74 early 75 fender on it. It's not the original.

    Replacement fender for sure.

    They were stamped out on assembly line 75-77,8 or 9? cars for the air cleaner intake tube.

    GM replacement fenders made after 75 had a recessed impression here, but not a hole.

    Another way to tell replacement fenders are the holes for the bolts on the cowl are square, not assembly line correct round.

    Think there would be any benefit to getting that air cleaner assembly off a later model. Kinda like a poor mans cold air induction?
