Here is something else I have seen on a handful of SWB cars: the quarter panels and trailing arms were changed by the owner to LWB parts, effectively creating an LWB car. This in turn, creates a mismatch between the lip styles of the front and rear wheel openings, and often the person modifying the car will swap for LWB fenders -- a bolt on swap.

Not common, but it does happen.
