  Is this a Canadian built car?  A few years back I had a '63 Monza sedan 
(Canadian built, late '63 production, original paint car) that had this blackout 
along the bottom rocker panel lip.  I don't recall noticing it on the front 
splash pan though.  I figure different factories experimented with such things 
trying to find the most aesthetically pleasing look.  Another unrelated oddity 
that the '63 exhibited was it's horns mounted inboard, under the trunk pan ALA 
'64 style.
