It is not quite academic for me... the reason being is I do not really want a non-stripe car so that will affect what I will want to pay for it. I know I can put stripes on it and I have no disrespect for people who do that but I won't. So I have to ask myself what will I be willing to offer in exchange for a no stripe car and having something not exactly perfect for me. If, as you allude to, the market doesn't distinguish a price so be it... however I still do for what I will pay for a factory stripe car vs. non stripe.

As for not asking the other details (options, born with drivetrain, mileage etc.) I understand all those things very well so I didn't need to
post anything or inquire on that. I just didn't understand the stripe system / RPO D88 / ZL2 consideration / Box 44 etc. for 1970 SS cars but now I do :-).
