Re: pics of 66 cowl hood stripes

Are you talking about the stripes like they put on 71 chevelles. I have never seen stripes on a 66 hood or 67 for that matter. I looked at the stencil and stripes web site and they only go back to 67 and thats for the stripe at the bottom of the car. I dont know if stripes would look right on the 66 67 body styles? If you decide to go through with it please put up a photo I would like to see how it looks.

Im not saying it wont look right with the right colors but I can say this for a fact. I have had 67 Chevelles since I was 16 and I am now 52 and have been to hundreds of car shows through the years and seen who knows how many pictures of 66 and 67 Chevelles and have never seen stripes on any of them. I would say its because they are more of a boxie or square body style than the 68 through 72 Chevelles which look good with the strips.

Re: pics of 66 cowl hood stripes

I could only find one 66 (hard to see them) and one 67 with those stripes. FWIW. I'm not a big van of 70-72 stripes on anything other than 70-72's.

The 67 just dont look right. The 66 however considering only the one photo dont look as bad as I thought it would. The stripes on the hood along with the wheels and exhaust all kinda blend together.

thanks I'm just kickin around the idea. Maybe gohst flames would look good also. Just seems like my 66 needs something on the paint sceam to give it that "atitude" look.
