Rear Tie Down Brackets
The rear tie-down brackets were a piece of hardware that should not be on your car but it usually was. This is because they were supposed to be removed by the transportation or dealer prep guys before the car was delivered to the customer per the decal placed on the rear license plate mounting location. The ones shown in this picture are the duel exhaust type, the single exhaust type doesn’t have the third mounting tab and they are smaller. We suspect most of them stayed on the cars because the credit given for there return wasn’t worth time it took to remove them. The originals had a bare steel finish and the bolts/nuts were phosphate plated. It's not uncommon to see original duel exhaust cars that only have the two bolts that go through the frame to keep the bracket in place.
