You are correct and Frank got it backwards. '61 - '69 with the 'fat' front
bumpers had a 1" spacing between the headlight and parking/turn signal
lights, later this spacing was increased to 2" with the face lift 'skinny'
front bumpers. Frank will have to nail his own kneecaps!
'59 Bugeye, 'Kermit'
'62 Sprite, 'Ole Gray'
'71 Midget, 'Freebie'
