No 1 owner of my 68 said it was ordered stripe delete. Also no console.

Do you have any documentation referring to it? If so what kind and how does it refer to it?

Yes, My car was ordered without stripes. It's marked on the build sheet as: (Stripes to be deleted). It also has the special paint code (-) on the trim tag.

It takes the place of the paint code.

Do you have a pic of tag? I have a 67RSSS that is said to be a factory bb delete.
Looking into a little more verification.

This is true for late 68 & 9.

67 would have been 0-0 & early 68 would have been Z-Z

Just post a pic of your trim tag and we will be able to help you.

Paint code shows A-2. So  your saying A= lower tux black, - = delete, 2 = vinyl top.  ??

Scratch that question. I finally found the CRG section on this. I have no dash on tag after options or on lower section.

If you mean by "bb", a big block, there's no such thing as "big block delete". The 396 was an option, like a radio or power steering. It wasn't "standard equipment" and you can't "delete" options.

How is the (-) placed in the tag?

Here's one example from a LOS special paint cowl tag...
