Mach1 Stripes
#1
Did all Mach1's with the hockey stick stripes come with the rockers blacked out? I've seen some with and some without the lower blacked out rockers? Just wondering what the norm was?

Good to know! The new Mach1 doesn't have the blacked out lower, just the hockey sticks!

Just make it the way YOU like it.

I just did the Boss 351 stripe on my hood, tail panel and honeycomb panel, all painted the same charcoal gray.

True the original cars either had black or argent stripes. On some colors you could get either.

Question, my 72 came with Argent silver stripes and 4Q Dark green metallic paint. I was just wondering if anybody knows if black stripes would have been available with that same color 4Q paint. Did the color paint dictate what color stripes you could order?

If the dealer placed a Special Order Paint and Trim you could get anything you wanted. It will have a 6 digit DSO code and the Build Sheet will show the Special Paint & Trim added. They would not have made a special color stripe either black or Argent were only two.

From what I understand, for 1971 and 1972 Mach 1's all the lower body panels were either black or argent.  Most did not come with the side tape stripes (hockey sticks).

For 1973 Mach 1's there was no lower body paint applied.

mrmach1,

Body-color did mandate the accent paint and tape stripe color applied at the assembly plant. 71-72 Mach 1's lower accent color was standard. Since the 73 Mach 1 had a new style side tape stripe it no longer had the lower accent paint treatment. The lower accent paint color could still be ordered with the Decor Group option on other models.  All Mach 1's received black paint and tape stripes except for the following exterior paint codes which received argent:

1971...A (Black),  C (Dark Green Metallic, J (Grabber Blue), 6 (Bright Blue Metallic)

1972...4Q (Dark Green Metallic), 4C (Ivy Glow), 3J (Bright Blue Metallic), 3F ( Grabber Blue)

1973...3K (Blue Glow), 4Q (Dark Green Metallic), 4C (Ivy Glow)    Smile
