What's up with the wood grained trim and door speakers?

Several things look incorrect, I doubt it will hit the pre-auction estimates. If this is original paint, it doesn't look like the pinch welds are blacked out....

I think the engine paint color is to light and has been repainted. Do not think is an original 20,000 mile car.

I checked the link and it’s showing as sold. The wood grain dash pieces definitely stand out, they are even peeling around the radio. Overall it’s a nice looking Eliminator but for the price I’d want everything spot on factory original.

Pinch welds are blacked out in the center but not on the lower rear quarters as I have underside shots of the car at MCACN when Mecum had it on display there. They never had the hood up when I was there though. But what wasn't mentioned in the Mecum write up is the dent / ding in the left fender and I think it was the left B pillar had one too, like something fell on the car in the garage. I thought I took pix of those, but can't find them. The car really looks to be low miles but things have been changed, 69 air cleaner, Argent rims from Mach 1 or Cyclone, speakers cut into the doors, the wood grain trim. And with minimal effort / cost most things can be corrected if one wants. Part of the price is factory spoiler delete and 4.30 Drag Pak car. It really is a decent car, but in my opinion not as nice as Dave's Waco BOSS.
