      Later Model
    The model shown below can be found with either of two lower barrel styles:
  • "SOUTH PARK" and a logo above a flat ground line O.D. rib (#s 0038 & 1512), or
  • no wording and no O.D. rib; but a factory weld joint (1513).
    Here is a view of the top of the bonnet which shows the wording.
