I own an LOS 67 and have had some roll through my shop and did rotisserie restorations on them. They had virgin, untouched original black bellies. Curious about the percentage of cars that had blue bottoms.

Do you guys have TT info on the cars you are aware of? Maybe you could get a consensus from build dates as to a time frame or maybe a grouping of cars?

The wheelhouse undercoating was applied after paint at the factory. I see blue but no gold beneath the undercoating.

I think you hit it...................I'm thinking someone pulled a switcheroo on the trim tag sometime in the car's past.  I hope I'm wrong.

I have a Ď68 second week of December Ď67 build and the bottom of the car is also black. If fact itís the same color as the firewall.

Why would someone put a gold trim tag on a blue car? Oh yeah, 3L 4P might be a reason. Time to start looking at upper body areas for original paint blue or gold color.

Was the VIN posted? Look very close to the match up with trim tag date and body number.

Just thinking, does the "blue" appear to be one of the blue option colors from 67?

My guess is this topic will continue to fade away.
