Maybe we can get a group order going, just in case there is a setup fee.  I'm in for a set in white.

It sounds like there is a consensus that early build SJ had the narrow stripes/gaps as referenced. I am the new owner of a 1967 390 Coupe (SJ built 1/4/67).  I suspect I would fall into this category? Is R&A still the place to call or have other options been uncovered?

Thanks in advance,

Bill

Several years ago, I had several sets of the 1965-67 Accessory Stripe Kits made from my originals by Class-Tec in Virginia. You may want to check with Chad White (the owner) there. 540-696-5758.

Same here.
I visited his site, and the stripe kit for a 67 mustang GT is still available...
But is it (still) the 'real deal'?
There aren't any specifications regarding the dimensions off the gaps between the '3 lines'.
I just want to make sure before purchasing any, that's why I ask these questions...
Kind regards,
Jeroen

Not sure what you mean by "specifications"

Unless I miss the meaning of your sentence or the subject the specifications were offered in the first few posts to this subject

Is it eh "real deal" - first it's a reproduction. Does it match the original pattern guess you have to make contact and ask specifics ;)

+1, and WELCOME! Very seldom does a new member introduce themselves with "HELP OFFERED", usually a new member has a request for "HELP NEEDED"! Much thanks!

This^^^  IS the previously mentioned Class-Tec in Virginia, Chad White (the owner). 540-696-5758.

I already ordered a set earlier this morning. I see Chad also offers a set of the typically found (wider) version as well and has other Mustang stripe kits for multiple years and applications with a notation of Ford Licensed.

The seller acknowledged the order immediately, giving POS feedback within a few minutes.  I requested the dimensions to be verified or they will be returned. My request for verification asks that they be  "narrow stripes that are 3/8" wide (Not 1/2") a wide stripe that are 1-15/32"(Not 1-1/2") and the gaps between the narrow and wide stripes are 9/32" wide each." and the seller did not rebut. I will offer an image of the product alongside a NOS Ford set I have.

Not sure if this is any "early" thing- might just be incorrectly made reproduction. Not like it would be the first time a repo part was off ;)

Ford approved means little when it comes to being like original parts - at least to the level we discuss here :(

Think we need to find some additional examples that can be measured rather then just eagle eyed :)

I am also thinking along these lines. (pardon the punn  ;D)

Has anyone found original examples with the "wider style" stripe?

Thanks for the welcome guys and hopefully that stripe kit is correct. You can clearly see in a lot of the early promo shots (White fastback GT with girl hanging out the passenger window) that the stripes were thinner.

My question is how often the GT's came without the rocker molding? Did the rocker molding only come on a GT if you ordered the exterior décor group as well?

Rocker molding on 67's (and 68) are a separate option altogether, nothing to do with the GT option and nothing to do with the exterior decor option.

Yes but be very very careful with preproduction details. Allot of differences are possible and allot of things changed between those months and when production started. One of the reasons we let a whole storage unit full of these pictures remain unpublished and unused back in the 80-90's

Just a consideration

Good point. With that in mind here is one of those photos I hadn't seen until recently - nice shot!

Yes it is. Notice that the pinch welds were not blacked out on these cars.  Car sure sits low for some reason but love those thin middle spaced sidewalls :)

Got a bunch of the film strips with these cars sitting around. Wonder how much hassle it would be to convert them to some mpg we could publish to the site. Just another project ;)
