Chevelle Roof & Belt Line Stripes?

Post by The Dude on Thu Oct 22, 2009 8:33 pm

So I'm surfing the web & I run across this:
http://www.phoenixgraphix.com/gm/1973cvl.htm

I always thought 73 Chevelles had the stripes running down the bottom of the car along the sides. scratch Guess I've never seen an actual car with this stripe although it would give a vintage vibe to the car. Is this like a separate option or did it come on certain packages? (SS or maybe Laguna)

Limey, after I saw the graphic I figured that was the deal. What about the stripes along the bottom that are normally seen on 73's? Like this:



or this:



How did GM determine which stripe was applied to what vehicle? After looking around I'm beginning to wonder if the SS got the lower stripes & the Malibus or maybe even Lagunas got the Phoenix Graphix style. I can't find any proof of these stripes even existing other than their website so IDK. Question

that stripe is for the SS only and the other was offered as an option for 73 deluxes and very base models

Thanks for clarifying Limey, I kind of figured that was the deal. Ant, definitely get some pics. I'd like to find a decent stripe to break up the solid color myself...... one of these days.

Great minds must think alike because I was thinking those stripes in black would look pretty badass against the 76's gold.
