Now that would be awesome! Especially if you had proof!I have often heard that once the '70 models were introduced with them, some dealers painted them on the '69s they had left on the lot to help them sell... of course I have no proof.
1969 AIM??? RPO D88 (Sport Stripes) or RPO D96 (Side Stripes)????I've never seen an original example but the AIM does list dimensions for twin stripes.
What is the AIM?1969 AIM??? RPO D88 (Sport Stripes) or RPO D96 (Side Stripes)????
I put 'em on a 60 Impala in '68!Remember that Z28 Camaros had the hood and deck stripes in '68 and '69 so some people copied those on '68/'69 Chevelles, not necessarily the '70 Chevelles. I put them on my '70 Nova in about '71.
Only question I have is were they dealer add on or painted on the assembly line?If you look in the COPO & Dealer forum, the thread by Roger D about his 1969 Dick Harrell modified "427 Super Chevelle" that was sold thru Bill Allen Chevrolet in Kansas City - he has no surviving photos, but has sanded thru a repaint to show that it was originally sold in August of 1969 with paint stripes.
Dick Harrell Performance Center also had a paint shop on premises.
Here's a pic from the thread.
Roger photoshopped up a car to show what his originally look like.
