BB fender braces on 70 442 Convertible?

Did the 1970 442 convertibles come with the big block curved front fender braces? This is a numbers matching car that I have owned many years. When I painted the car in 1989. I replaced the rotted original (flat lip) front fenders, but there were apparently no braces on them. I just raised the body off the frame to detail it, and this question came to mind. I also own a 1970 442 hardtop which has the braces. Is it possible that the stronger convertible frames did not require the braces? The convertible has an automatic trans and AC. Thanks, Bob

Centerline wheels 17x8's front and 17x9.5 rear.

No braces used on the convertibles.....the Assembly Manual states that as well.
