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!

72B paint code
729 interior code

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

I vote for white stripes and white vinyl top. It will look killer with the white interior. Even if the trim tag said black vinyl top I would pay more for it with the white stripes and top.

The stripes were Black or White with Hugger Orange but only black stripes were available if you had the black vinyl top. Rally Green was the same way.

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

White/Orange/White would look pretty nice

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.

Do the stripes black and white!! One of each!! Or better yet like the 35th stripes checkerd flag style!!

On a more serious note I think black top, black stripes would look sharp.
