Hockey stick stripes were Black only

Yeah, but geez they really should have offered a couple of more colors ... after all, you could get the V6? side stripes on a Challenger in seven different colors ... why not a couple V6? colors for the Cuda? Guess the front office blew their vinyl graphics allocation budget on the Challenger and the Cuda was left with budgeting for only a single color vinyl graphic ... black of course. Just another one of those mysterious front office decisions that we can only speculate about. :drunk:

My bad.  It was new to me.  When I couldn't find any pics of the data plate, then I started to become a bit suspicious.

No worries. It's not your fault.

They at least halfway learned something when they brought out the V4 stripes.

Yes, it is mostly original paint. Have a Buildsheet with all correct Codes. It was stored since 1978.

It was the recommended bumblebee stripe color for Plum Crazy cars, so it isn't really odd.

I would say that is a matter of opinion. Because it was recommended doesn't necessarily make it correct or fitting, just what someone in the marketing department of Dodge in 1970 thought, I see a yellow stripe on a purple car with a black interior "a bit odd". Not saying its wrong as it is a matter of opinion, just saying that to me, its different. Again, I think it is striking and looks good, but I suspect a lot more were ordered with a black or white rump stripe over the yellow one despite it being the recommended color.

Not trying to start an argument here, just offering a comment.
