Stripes on the '69 Camaro Z/28. Which is correct?

Hey All,

I have a question for all the Camaro fanatics in here. I recently came upon a 1969 Camaro z/28 in a barn. I have started doing research into what it is going to take to restore it to its original condition. In my search for the correct information on "Stripe" location, I have this question?

"Where do the stripes stop?" Do they stop on the spoiler or do they continue down onto the trunk pan?

As far as I know this is the original paint and the stripes stop on the spoiler.

I will try an attach a pick of what I am talking about.

^^^That is correct^^^

the major difference seems to be the front...
67 and 68 go all the way to the nose
69's are stopped about a inch or two from the nose

So, would this be an incorrect restoration? Somebody recently opened a new Muscle Car shop about 20 miles from where I live and he had 2 nicely restored cars. One was a 69 Pace Car X11 convertable, the other was a very nice Z/28 x77. He is asking $70k for the X11 and $62k for the X77. Both of them had there stripes painted onto the trunk lid.

You should ask n1tem4r3 on that. That car is actually his dad's and he could probably tell you exactly how it was restored, if at all. My guess is that it is very accurate.

Looks like you have some work to do!

But it will be very rewarding after you are all done!

What are your plans with it?

Q: What is the correct trunk lid striping for a Z-28 with a spoiler?

A: If the spoiler was installed at the factory:

The paint stripes go over the spoiler, and end at the bottom of the spoiler (and therefore not on the back lip of the trunk lid)
The Camaro trunk lid emblem was moved forward, up the trunk lid, from station 125.00 to station 121.73, a distance of 3.27 inches, and the Z stripe was masked (1967-68 only) around the emblem.
If the spoiler was installed by the dealer:
The stripes were painted on the trunk lid at the factory and thus, without a spoiler, run all the way through to the lip of the lid. The dealer installed spoiler was attached over the factory stripes and then the dealer painted the spoiler to match.
The dealer did not relocate the Camaro emblem.

It has always been a plan of mine to find an old Camaro just as that, and make it my project car. However, after seeing that car, it is a little intmidating.

How do you plan on repairing all of those rusted out body panels?
