Yes, it does look professionally done. It definitely looks like something that could have come from the factory, whether or not it actually did. I will try to check the VIN number tonight. I don't know where in the production run this car falls.
It also has the standard steel wheels with hubcaps, whereas all these cars I've seen pictures of have the Rostyles (or the Rostyle look-alikes, I forget what they are called?). Again, I'm sure the car has been that way since new.
I'll post the VIN number after I check it.

I'm pretty certain it's been that way since new, though it's entirely possible that it was a dealer modification. Are there other cars out there which have the blue trim painted directly onto the body panels?
I've only heard of the blue being a painted rectangle, Geoff. Does your
piece of metal look pretty professionally done? Is the VIN near the
beginning or end of the model run? The production records in the back of
Taylor's book don't seem to separate that special model from the other
