This original 1963 photograph of GS#004 shows that the Grady Davis crew had cut out the side vents in an experiment with under hood airflow and cooling. When GS#004 was brought back to Chevrolet in late 1963, the factory side vents were repaired, back to the stock appearance.

In order to be "1964 timeline authentic", the restored body of #004 now has telltale evidence of the late 1963 repaired side vents. This picture of the inside of #004's front fender clearly shows the repair seams (dark strips around the vents) and the woodgrain on the new inner fender well.
