hi, i am restoring a 69 hugger orange z28. the car has a factory black vinyl top and a white interior. my question is- would the car still be correct if i put white stripes on it? or did they have to be black when you had a black top? i am trying to do everything factory correct so i dont want to put on white stripes if it wasnt avalible from the factory. any info is apriciates. thanks! tommy
Lets see a Black viynl topped Hugger Orange Z with white stripes. dont think even GM would have allowed for 3 different colors on the exterior. I would keep it Black viynl top/Hugger Orange with Black stripes Whats the paint and interior codes?
If you had a black vinyl top, you need black stripes. Stick to the same colors on the exterior...
Not only did GM not recommend it, but i think that would be a shame to spend all this time and money and end up with a funky skunk!
according to the info i have (from jerry macneish's 69 camaor definitive fact book), a z28 with a black vinyl top required black stripes. it didnt say they i couldnt have a hugger orange with a white top and black stripes. i am confused as to why this is. anyone know? or am i mistaken?
i wouldnt question it but i really like the looks of the white stripes. i have to keep the black vinyl top no matter (trim code) what but those black stripes, black top and orange make me think of halloween and i dont like it. the car does have a white interior although. hmmmm

Unless you are willing to ditch the vinyl top all together (or swap it over to white) I would put black stripes on the car. Your car would look great though with a white top, white stripes and white interior!
i am trying to keep this car as original as possible. would switchng from a black to a white top decrease the value much? the black top is indicated on the trim tag. i do like the all white idea. thanks
but this poses another question. so gm would allow you to have a hugger car, with a white top and black stripes? but not black top and white stripes. this is what i dont understand. my books say this same thing. hmmmmm
I don't like the black stripes or top with hugger orange. It makes the orange look darker than it really is.
My car used to be hugger orange with a white top, white Z-28 stripes and a white interior. I really liked the look. I don't think a white vinyl top would decrease the value at all. If anything, it would make it easier to sell because I've never heard anyone say anything bad about the looks of a hugger orange car with white exterior options.
