The internet is a powerful thing. I admit that I am learning more about our beloved E-bodies today than I knew "back in the day" when I was owning, driving and thrashing them! One of the things is the incredible myriad of different types of stripes, vinyl tops, mouldings and their colors that you could have ordered from the factory - the "V-codes! You have your V1 vinyl tops, V4 strobe stripes, V5 vinyl side mouldings, V6 longitudinal stripes, V7 accent stripes (painted pin-stripes), and V9 Bumble-Bee stripes. As far as I can tell, you could get the V1 vinyl tops in seven different colors, V4 strobe stripes in four colors, V5 vinyl side mouldings in seven colors, V6 longitudinal stripes in eight colors, V7 Accent pin-stripes in who knows how many colors, and the V9 Bumble-Bee stripe in 12 colors. Whew! That is a lot of different styles and colors!
Here is my revised table as to what "V-codes" were available. The first time I presented this table KA (KissAlien) KA'd (kicked a$$) on me for not doing my homework.
I have since searched and searched for the "correct" answers and this newer version is, I believe, more accurate then it's predecessor. It is however a "living document" and subject to change and updates as more definitive credible information becomed available.
The vast majority of the V-codes seen on the cars seem to be either black or white. However, there are examples of the less popular colors out there. Now lets see how many of the different colors we can find and post other than the common black or white ones. Here are a few examples to kick things off:
1970 Challenger RT with a V6B Blue side stripe
1970 Cuda with an "incorrect" V6R Red "Hockey Stick" stripe
1970 Cuda with V1P Yellow "Mod-Top" vinyl roof
