I think the term "slant-nose delete" is a bit of a misnomer and it muddies the water a bit. The slantnose was an option, first through the special-wishes program, and later as option 505 for US cars and 506 for Euro cars.. Thus how could it be a delete. Cars were simply ordered through special wishes with the other attributes of the slantnose, i.e. boxed rockers and rear vents. Assumption being these are the items your cars has.. minus slant frond fenders.

Should be interesting to see how these certifications turn out as the record keeping for the special-wishes cars is well documented as spotty at best.

Good luck however!
