    Is that from the factory?
    They are supposed to have the standard ‘69 marker light (like the Chargers etc)
    but if you google image the car you see so many with the other fenders

    Example

    Take a close look, you will see the amber marker light section, and the other light is for the "Cornering Light" which was a highly liked option. The fenders are a different stamping.

    Those are optional cornering lights. The fender had a different opening for the larger light/side marker combo.

    On the verge of being redundant - you’re mistaken. Those fenders are correct. As stated, they are for the cornering lamp option. You just happen to see a majority of NYers with the option because NYers are generally, higher optioned, but no car came standard with them.
    69 is the only year that uses those fenders for Chryslers, as in 70 & 71 they changed the Amber light location to above the belt line for all Chrysler’s
