    noticed the front bumper on my 65 country squire is off. the gap on the fenders is out a inch + from right to left. Zero signs of on collision damage. Is there much room for adjustment?

    If it's just dropped a little on one side just loosen the two bolts attaching the bumper bracket to the frame on that side and push up on the bumper ( whether by hand, jack or stand) until it is in position and snug up the bolts then do a check to see if it is where you want it before fully tightening the bolts.

    I have a 66 7 Litre so the adjustments are the same.
