Just asking?

Steve I think you would be hard pressed to come up with a better look than the one in your rendering.

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

It's what YOU want...IMHO I would go with something to set it apart. I was hell bent on pepper gray and metallic black for mine (the colors from Eleanor) love the combo, I was gonna mimic Boss 351 scheme with those colors. Then, every time I opened a Mustang mag there was another one in that color combo. So, not too long ago I finally decided on all black, not that black will be very different, but by all black, I mean ALL BLACK. the only thing I plan on not having black is the outter lip of the wheels.
Anyway, do what you like, try to set it apart somehow, and do something "timeless" I can't tell you how many cars I've painted in a "different" or "trendy" color only to be sick of it 6 months later.

It'll look good no matter what!
BTW, what rendering? Is there a post with pics??? I'd love to see it.

How about black with satin black stripes, the same stripes you were planning on before.

Thanks Jeff, I think it's pretty cool too! Props to Flatback72 for the rendering. I'm still not sure about the "c" stripes. I like the look, but with the front fenders of our cars taking up so much real estate, I like how the hockey stick stripes go all the way forward. Well, I still have 3-6 months to make up my mind on that one!

Best non original graphics i saw in our cars is the mexican shelby ones... Some day ago was a thread with a car using them.. Kinda Cuda style or something like that... Agresive to the nuts!

It might depend upon your direction. Do you want to return the car to its original colour? If not, then choose a colour that you like the look of. I have owned a 73 green convertible with an avocado green interior. Currently I have a copper brown 73 coupe with a ginger interior. The interior colour can have an impact on how much the car will pop. Black and red always seem to gain attention, whereas I have always preferred green with ginger. My green convertible looked sharp with the silver hockey stick stripes and ram air hood package.

My interior is black! It was originally red but I have bought all new interior panels in black and will paint the rest to match. I do have the silver argent Mach One stripes and I do plan on adding the ram air assembly to the ram air hood.

Thanks I believe it will look best in that combination. I plan on making it a true ram air.
