Hello CRG Community:
At long last, we're getting very close to putting paint on my 67 Z/28. This car was originally painted Hugger Orange (or very close to it....) in 1967 as a special order paint car. This car DID NOT have a vinyl top. During the stripping / body work process, we could not find ANY evidence of either black or white stripes on the car. Nonetheless, I've come to believe that a Z/28 had to have / generally could not have come without / NEEDS stripes to say "Z/28."
Being that this is a special order paint car, I suppose that it COULD have come with either black or white stripes. I've also learned that in 1969 Hugger Orange Z/28's HAD to have white stripes unless they were ordered with a black vinyl top, in which case the car would have black stripes as well.
But - since this car was made in 1967 - and again its a special order paint car - could it be "correct" with either black OR white stripes? What would you do? What do you think would be most "correct?"
Thanks for helping me with this decision.
