Hi Schuyler,
 
Frankly, my eyes do not see any change in image proportions.
 
Furthermore, on my browser (Firefox), the image info is as follows:
 
Full size image width 800px, height 579px, ratio of width to height is 1.382
 
Origional (smaller) image width 500px, height 362px, ratio of width to height is 1.381
 
Since the ratio of width to height is virtually unchanged between the two viewing options, this supports the notion that there is no distortion

Note that when you click on the image for a larger view, the proportions of the car are different.  Longer, less tall.  The original image (I assume) is distorted.

 

BTW, can anyone make out the BLT date?  I read the servicing date as 5-53, is that right?
