Nope, it has disc brakes too!   Smiley

Finally got a chance to reply. Looks like he figured it out for 69.


However my car shows GG on the trim plate ,nothing else. ( 04 Norwood car). In the late 80's, early 90's the old man who shot the stripes approached me at a show  proudly giving some history of the car. Done at Milad Chevrolet in Amherst.  Honestly I sort of didn't believe him and put it off over the years.

Flash forward to a few years ago...#1 calls me, we chit chat ,tells me car was stripe/console delete. Plus some other cool history.


As my paint/body man was obtaining measurements ,told me they were slightly off per CHP, this site etc... So there it is. Pretty sure the mice ran off with the build sheet ,if that's what it was , almost 30 years ago.

Can't be console delete, console was an option, not part of the base car.  Had to be ordered as an extra cost item.

Isn't the stripe(s) part of a package?    it would mention the stripe separately, ONLY if it were deleted...

D90 was was part of the Z27 package in 67. To the best of my knowledge you are correct Gary. When you have ordered a package that includes the stripe it would not be listed. But as I am finding out it "may" be shown on the cowl tag, sometime in 67 with a 0-0 paint code, or a "-" toward bottom of tag right of options 68 and later.
My original question was how was this shown, what code was used, on window sticker. This I am being told was 1001AA Special Paint.
Is this correct?

Paint codes on the window sticker would have been 1001AA for a no charge special paint, all the way up to a 1001HA paint code for the most expensive paint.  Nowhere on the window sticker would it tell you what the special paint color was.  The 0-0 special paint code would clue the paint booth to check the associated paperwork for the car to get the color to be used, and it was typically sprayed from a hand held pressure pot in the paint booth, unless the car was part of a fleet order of about 50 or more cars that would justify filling one of the paint systems in the booth with that color paint.

The "-" code after the 5th option group means the car is part of a fleet order.  Not all of the tags in a single special order would contain the FSO number (for some reason, never figured out yet), maybe every 10th car got the full number.  Ex the 67 pace cars have a fleet order of -061 (one of a few numbers), but theres plenty of them that just have a single "-" in that location.  If the car was a one off FSO order car, it would have the complete FSO number after the dash.  But the "-" FSO designator after the 5th option group really has nothingto do with the special paint code.  You could get a special paint car without having an FSO number.
