I recently purchased an early 72 type 107. It appears to be all original. However, the bottom, rear valance(?) is a rough/textured feel/appearance. Was this common on early models, or is this a repair or undercoat?

Thanks for everyone’s help!

Welcome to the forum.

It's factory chip guard. Rockers should be too.

My 72 had that same finish.

Later when repairing rust, I was able to buy a complete new set of those valances. They came with just a prime coat, so I could put on any finish I wanted.

On some cars those valances were colour matched to the body. On others they were painted black. Same with rockers on some cars.
