Newby here, but I'm looking to buy a classic Bronco. I see many advertised as uncut and I assume this refers to the rear wheel cutouts, but what I can't figure out is this feature (uncut) is dependent on a particular year or model. It can't be that all the full cutout wheelwells I see are custom done?

If ten minutes with a sawzall is "custom "

No idea why ford did em like that

Oddly , when I cut mine out the part I removed was EXACTLY the same size and shape as the removable fender skirts on my 66 Thunderbird

Here's a t bird skirt for reference

Thanks for the responses, now I know. IMHO the cutout ones look much better but it would be tough to do on a pristine original.
