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 ;)

Yes, a few other problems with that example, no mirror or antenna (radio delete?)

Just for clarification... as the rocker moldings were a different option in 67 (not included in the exterior decor group)?
Meaning that it must be specified on the Marti report?
Or not?
I have original rocker panel moldings and a exterior decor option, but that (= rocker molding) is not mentioned on my Marti report...
Kind regards,

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.

,,,I will offer an image of the product alongside a NOS Ford set I have.




My order just marked as "SHIPPED" today, I noticed two things since I placed the order on the 27th...
ONE: His eBay listing now shows the dimentions of the stripe that will be coming and they look to be consistent with the measurements previously mentioned in this thread.
TWO: His price went up a couple of dollars since the last three orders were placed.

(apparently two others following this thread have bought the stripes too ;) I am not alone :D)

I think that the rocker panel mouldings were standard on the fastback.  This has been discussed on one or more threads, should be an easy search.

Nope, you are not alone and the dimensions weren't there...on eBay....when I ordered. Mine have shipped as well and I am looking forward to seeing them. The eBay seller is Chad White at Class-Tech-Cars, who I believe was referenced earlier in this thread.

Stripes arrived today, They measure 100% correct, best I can tell.

 I posted side by side images of my NOS (1980's?) set along side the reproduction set I just received, with the tape measure.

 I posted side by side images of my NOS (1980's?) set along side the reproduction set I just received, with the tape measure.

Here's the measurements I got from the image:

                    L        R
Top stripe:        .48      .37
Top gap:           .27      .28
Middle stripe:    1.44     1.44
Bottom gap:        .26      .28
Bottom stripe:     .47      .37

Overall width:    2.91     2.74

They match within my approximate measurement error, except for the narrow stripes. The ones on the right are about .10" narrower (a little under 1/8"). Overall width was about .17" narrower on the right

Per the eBay seller, dimensions are within the images below: (top image is what we are calling "early", lower image is what the seller has for "late")

Old post, I know.

If you have any SCCA friends you should be able to find someone who does car numbers locally or on the web. Car numbers and other single color decals on race cars use exactly the same vinyls and processes as does these stripe kits. The number of colors available from vinyl vendors is amazing.

There are a number of hobbyists who own these vinyl cutting machines and can make them in any size.
