Maybe modify the drivers side fender so that it matches the passengers side as the fender is from a 73 on up style.

Sixx you are correct lol. Looks like someone patched in the vent sometime back in the day. I missed the wider flange on the fender.

The way you are able to tell is when you are looking at the engine compartment. Look at each fender where they meet the top inner fenders, you can see that the drivers side fender has two holes and the opposite side fender doesn't. The two holes are for the fender braces from 73 on up.
