Stripe option on early 67 SD (A51 Sport Option) cars?


I see another 67 SD owner joined tonight. As I was looking at his car, a thought came to mind. Maybe this has been discussed but I can be forgetful. I looked through the registry and the earliest D96 stripe car listed is December (738 car).

Was D96 stripe option available on the SD 396 cars prior to the A51 option changeover?

In my late 67 brochure(738 cars)
It lists a "body side decor stripe" available on SD models only


In my early 67 brochure(A51 cars)  it also lists it on the inside cover.
Only available on 396 cars, a "horizontal pait stripe low on the body side"

Yes,  early and late cars could have it

An excellent question carl!!

Its too big for my scanner,
i'm sure ive seen one on the internet

It features the same car on the cover, but with a BB hood and a bench seat.

also wording is changed to  "the swinging one, the one with spirit"

Hmm, wish we had more cowl tag info for some of those early A51 cars. There may be some D96 stripe cars in there.

Makes sense. I figured if it was available early on there would be some. It just wasn't showing in the registry since a lot of those guys have not given cowl tag info.

the only one we have seen so far,

i imagine its fairly rare on the A51 cars because it has to be a early 736 A51 396 car and how many of those are there? + its optional

Seems to be about 50/50.  Most people dont know to look for the difference.
