^Those others aren’t the same model. But even so, you can see they have two sets of holes on the top, in case you want to attach them to a vintage deck. Frenchy’s have one set of holes at top.

Just sayin’.

Eh who knows I’m probably wrong. Those boards have been reissued numerous times over the last 30 or so years so maybe it’s legit 80’s i dont Know for sure

That’s true, but there would be three sets of holes drilled for each pair of trucks...because they would only fit an original board.

Oh — you can measure the hole pattern. That should tell you. The truck baseplate should be 42x65 mm, as opposed to 42x55, apparently.

I don’t think Gullwing reissued those trucks, but...lemme google that.

Plus I have that same Body Glove sticker on my trunk from summer camp. That’s a good sign.
