Why do you call that a L78 stripe? My HS buddy's blue 327 '68 had the exact stripe  like yours when he bought it new.

It came standard on late 68 SS's the early SS's had the 67 style Bumble bee. Lemans Blue was a spring color and thus would have received the longer stripe. It was also available as a separate option-D90.  
I second the more pics as I have a fondness for LB 68's having had a LB 68 RS/SS 396 in the 80's.

Thanks, where did you get the info to confirm this and should the drivers side be the same? I will look at it again.
