Correct Striping
« on: March 10, 2014, 03:42:45 AM »
Hi all,

I am trying to determine the correct color (Striping) for my 69 Z28.
I know the original color (Hugger Orange) but can't if striping white or black?
I believe (correct me if wrong) standard (basic) was white unless requested black or removed.
Thanks for any assistance.

Post a good photo of your trim tag. Is or was there a vinyl top? If so what color?

Would you happen to know what the ?OB would mean; not the ? of course but what this area on tag identifies?

is the 0 right next to a rivet? I'm thinking 10B = second week of October.
72 72 = hugger orange body & top (no vinyl or vert) = stripes are white.

My 69 z is also a 72 72 with a LOS build. I also think that the build date is 10B. I have the short rear stripes. Their are other threads
regarding that some of the early built z28's followed the assembly manual specifications for the rear stripe layout. Others have commented that
the assembly manual is wrong, but with no supporting evidence.

Thank you, yup thats why I wanted to check with folks. From my research I was finding the same document (assembly) manual was incorrect or/and not able to valid the documentation. I was trying to locate the correct tone of stripe as well.  Grateful you took the time to share with me.

We've known for many years that the rear stripe illustration in the Chevrolet Assembly Manual (section Z28, sheet B2, View "A", 5.20" dimension) is wrong; Fisher Body didn't use the AIM - they used their own Operation Description sheets ("O.D. Sheets") and Release drawings from GM Styling to create the stencils used in production.

The white stripes would be CODE 50 "Dover White"
I have some pics of an original owner survivor 9B LOS Z28 which has the narrow rear stripes, however I have never seen an original "short stripe" car.
