Grandé Side-Stripe for a '71?
#1
New to this folks, but just wondering if anyone has a picture of the '71 Grandé side stripe? I seem to recall it was different from the 72-3 in that it only went to just behind the door, rather than the full length. Was it just a simple two-strip tape, or was there a secondary color between the 2 (I'm thinking like on the '69s where there was a gold middle, with black above and below, though that 69-year was a much thicker stripe). Any info would be appreciated, and thanks!

Side stripe was the same in '71/72.

1973 Mach 1's had the thicker, lower stripe that ran up to the rear wheelwell, though 1973 Decor Group cars could be ordered with the 1971/72 style stripe.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

Thanks Kurt: I've seen pictures where it seems to go along the body crease from the front of the fender to just behind the doors, rather than all along the tops of the fenders; I'm wondering if that is perhaps a door-guard type of molding rather than a strip?

Wait a second - are we talking about the side decal stripe, or the rub strip for parking lot door rubs found on the cars with the Protection Package?

That sounds like the protection strip

Also dealers would add various pin stripes to cars on the lot.

I don't have a pic but remember some Grandes having the small pinstripe that ran along the upper sides of the body line. Looks like the Protection Group option negated the use of this stripe, if so ordered.

I have captured the following info on the 1971 Grandé stripes:

And related info on the 1971 Protection Group:

Here's a 73 Grandé with correct Grandé side pinstripe:

You are correct in that the '71 Grandé side stripe is different from those on the '72 and '73 Mustang in that the stripes only extended "from the leading edge of the front fender, along the body line, before tapering off just aft of the door." The '71 stripe was (is) a dual accent stripe that varied dependent upon the exterior of the car and Yes it was deleted from cars with the Protection Package.

The '72 and '73 Grandé side stripes were (are) "2-toned, beginning at the edge of the front fender and following upper body line to the rear of the quarter panel. The stripes were available in 3 different color combinations, depending upon the exterior paint: gold/green, gold/white, and black/orange."

Obviously I don't have a 71 Grandé, but is this the stripe you guys are talking about? with a matching one on the hood?

Ah, great info everyone - I really appreciate the feedback. Particularly interesting to me is the comment that Dealers would apply striping as well (assumingly pre-delivery). The copies of the option-lists really helps; Thanks All.

That's the location and length of what I recalled (and what I was after), and that looks like the rub-strip from the Protection Group noted in a response above. I think my 'mystery' is solved in the attachment above that noted the stripe is deleted when the Protection Group is ordered, and from that I'll assume the location of either the stripe or the rub-strip would be the same. Again, great feedback all!

That last pic with the blue one is the protection group. Mine had that too. That was the first thing to come off. Smile
