anyone have this color combo?
#1
I'm considering a repaint with this combo but haven't seen one in real life, and yes, I am Burnt Reynolds.  Even I can't afford a 77 Tran AM SE.

If you forget the dents, the rust, the dirt and few other details missing like the shine...
That's exactly my 71!

Hey it is your car and you need to do what you like. If it is a 72 they did not offer black as an exterior color and of course the stripe would have been Argent to be correct. If you are not building a show car do what you enjoy. Lots of the stripe kits are wrong size and nothing like originals.

Looks good.....BUT......I would go for lime green insets and stripes(which was a color option) OR Bright yellow. Black and yellow with wide exhaust pipes driving down the road like a angry hornet Big Grin

cigarguy, hope this is enough push to go from considering to committed. Like David posted, black was a standard color choice in 71 and a special order for 72-73 with black and argent as the only stripe color choices. The black exterior color fits our 71-73's like a glove and I wish had been a standard option for all model years. The black and gold combo should look great on your car. GM sure sold a ton a Trans Am's when everyone had "Bandit" fever.
I'm sure you have noticed since being here that everyone is good with recognizing that's it's your car, do what ever it takes to "Scratch your Itch"!
Ford has had several black and gold cars over the years that sold well. The black and gold Mustang II Cobra's, Black Magic Capri's, and of course the GT 350 Shelby's to name a few.
And Fabrice was kind enough to offer his 429 Mustang as inspiration. As he posted, just ignore the dents, rust, dirt and lack of shine!     Smile

Perfect.  Thanks for the pics.  I really like this.  The gold on black is sharp.

Hmmm...black with bright yellow decal kit could be a sinister combination.  International sign for danger, stay away

Yeah, it's strange how every other generation but 71-73 sported this combo.  I'm conflicted about a repaint that is neither factory option or correct for my build sheet (Dark Green), but it's such a mean look
