1979 S & S I am looking at

Going to look at a 79 this afternoon that has supposedly had the stringers redone. If this has been done, should it be obvious to me when I look at it? What should I look for when looking?
Thanks for any help.

When you open the motor box you will have a good view of where the engine mounts to the stringers. Unless you pull up floor sections, that is the only place you will be able to see the stringers.

Will there be much difference in the look of my 85 and this 79 as to the engine mounts that would help me tell the stringers had been replaced? I will take pictures and post here as well. Thanks!

They will look different. If the stringers were done, it would likely be to have the old engine mounts re-installed into a solid stringer. The floor should have been replaced along the way. Does the wood on the stringers and the floor look 30+ years old?
