James,

The white stripe in your first photo appears to have been repainted, if you look just below the camaro emblem, on the spoiler, the white paint for the stripe is chipped, and there appears to be 'white paint' below it.  If this was original, wouldn't the color underneath the white stripe be the blue paint??  Or maybe what I'm seeing in the photo isn't reflective of the car itself?

To me, it looked like when the paint chipped it took both the white and the blue under it leaving the fiberglass (whiteish color) exposed. But, that is just my opinion.

Thats all the way down to the bare spoiler...

Exactly... it is the white finish of the spoiler....

Thanks James, for the correction; to my old eyes in the photo, it appeared to be older white paint.. Smiley

THE PICTURE POSTED BY x66 714  LOOKS JUST MY EARLY BUIILT Z28 FROM LOS. THERES ANOTHER THREAD BY JOHN MELLO REGARDING THE SHORT REAR STRIPES ON EARLY BUILT Z28'S FROM LOS. SO, IF THIS SHORT REAR STRIPE PAINT IS WRONG AS POSTED JOHN Z, THEN AT LEAST IT CAN SAID THAT THOSE EARLY BUILT Z28'S WITH ORIGINAL STRIPES THAT WERE PAINTED SHORT ARE FACTORY Z28'S. ITS ANOTHER INDICATION OF AUTHENTICITY.

There's no question that the "short stripes" on the rear of some '69 Zs (like that seen on the orange Z at the top of the page) is authentic as done by GM. I don't think it has yet been determined if there is a small window of time when this was done as standard practice or if it was simply an instance where they used the vinyl top stencil to finish off the stripes because a non-vinyl top stencil was not available.

Excellent point John Mello. And as I said before those early built z28's from LOS that have original paint with the shorter rear stripes is an indication that the car is a factory original z28. I believe no other camaro's were made with the rally stripes except the pace car.

The early LOS Z28 I referenced not only has the narrow rear stripe design but they are also shorter as well, however they do not appear to be as short as the Orange car which was originally referenced.

Good point. The measurements of the rear stripes on my early built 69 z28 match the factory manual. Regardless the reason of why it happened, the fact is that these few factory 69 z28's with the shorter length rear stripes are unique.  And I also feel that having the original paint with these shorter
stripes authenicate the vehicle as an original 69 z28. Like to hear John Z comment on this.

After reading through this I've decided to contact the guy with the orange car to get his plant & production date. As soon as I get his information, I'll post it. It was NOT restored this way...regrettably .....Joe

x66 714,

I also have a Hugger Orange 69 z28 with the short stripes. I can also supply information to you as well.

It looks like several 69 z28's with build dates from at least 10D through 11A received the shorter length rear rally stripes. Mine having the 10D build date. I guess no one can say all Los built z28's built between those build dates had the shorter stripes, but at least know several did. I have pictures of at least 4 to 5 other 69 28's that have the shorter stripes. Pictures were supplied by John Mello and of course this post of the Hugger orange 69 z28. What I can say is that my 69 z28 has the original paint, built at the LOS plant, build date of 10D, shorter length rear stripes that match the factory assembly manual specifications and the shorter length rear spoiler (Longer length 1969 Camaro spoiler not available during build - factory used 1968 Camaro spoiler).

It's unfortunate that some owners of these early built z28's that came from LOS, had their car repainted to match the consensus that the shorter stripes are wrong and replaced their shorter length rear spoilers with the longer rear spoilers to match the consensus that the shorter length rear spoilers were also wrong.

I feel very strongly that if you have and early built 1969 z28 that came from LOS plant, with the original paint having the shorter rear stripes and the shorter rear spoiler, that this is an indication of Authenticity of a factory built 1969 z28. The only other camaro that came with rally stripes was the pace car, I dont know if LOS made pace cars. It is also unknown the value these unique z28's may garner, maybe higher value,  maybe lower value. But, for sure, they are unique and verifiable as a factory built 1969 z28.

Like to hear from John z or Jerry McNeish.
