Older Atlas Gp-7/9 questions;

Did Atlas re-tool the body of the Geep 7 & 9 when they changed to the Correct truck centers ?

i.e.  -Today's GP 7/9 shells are NOT the same as the shells that were sold on the old chassis with in-correct truck centers ?

Yeah, those 1980s abominations were completely abandoned when the 1995/1996 GP7 and GP9s were tooled up and produced in China.

Almost quit N scale when those "stretch" Geeps came out in the 1980s. ::)
