There are no bad colors in 69.

I like Frost Green!

Ditto!

Philip, thanks for the clarification. I thought that was probably the case, but thought I'd ask anyway. I actually thought it might be because if the doors failed to operate you'd have no headlights. So the added lights would be a failsafe of sorts.

Kind of a smart move to put them in the backup lens since they weren't obvious and didn't attract attention as in the running/brake lights. I was told by the officer that ticketed me (more than once), that the blue/purple hue was in conflict with the blue lights that emergency vehicles use. Seemed pretty dumb, but some people are easily confused I suppose. I relocated them to the backup lens as an act of defiance and never had a problem.

I actually got more attention and crap from police for having a whip antenna with a light on the tip. I don't know how many tickets I got for that. I was able to get away with it for awhile by tinting the back of the bulb red and the front orange, mimicking the tail and parking lights. I finally stopped using it when an officer threatened to impound my car after repeatedly stopping me. He would follow me home, sit there and wait for me to leave, and then follow me wherever I went. As long as I didn't screw up, he'd leave.

FWIW, I'd keep the hitch installed on the car. It's a nice characteristic of it.

Man that sucks! Lesson; make sure the shop that has your car has controls so that can't happen and at least has insurance to cover all losses.

Like anything else; the more desirable the item, the higher the premium.

Mike, I've known about the added headlights, but the backups are a new twist. Question; were standard grille cars required to have the extra set of headlights too? If so, were they mounted in front or behind the grille? I know I've seen pics of cars with extra lights mounted on the grille face for night races. Just curious if it's known if they were required in Europe/France.

I noticed that too. May have been a European requirement?

It shouldn't be, but it is funky! Also not the way the pinstripe ends into the nose stripe.

Depending on the date code, it could also be from an L30/M20. Possible, but unlikely it came out of a Z-28. As for value, probably somewhere around 3k.

It really depends on what you have and provenance.

I'd say so due to the vent window.
