My 67 coupe is going to be ready for paint very soon, and I'm having a very hard time deciding on the color, and if I should put the stripes on her, at this point I'm thinking Very dark blue (BMW has some very nice Midnight blues), with white stripes, what do ya think ? does anyone know where I might find some pic's of 67 coupes with stripes ?

Personally, I'd say stay with the blue with no stripes. If you want to stand out from the crown a bit, maybe put the shelby type stripe down the side, and leave out the wide stripes in top of the car. Look at this (even though its a vert). THis looks really sharp, not overdone and "fake".

Make sure you take pictures : )

I have to agree with the other post. On a classic Mustang understated and subtle seems to work better, IMHO. If you want to go with a non-stock color, the BMW dark blue, how about the Shelby style side stripes in argent rather than white? Just a thought, either way it's your car and you are the one who has to be happy with it.

That BMW blue looks a little purple to me. If I know the one you are talking about. There are some really nice colors on the 2000-2001 Mustangs... Check out True Blue, I think it's the style you are looking for.

there is a green coupe, 70 i believe. that lives next to me. it has white lemans stripes down its back. it actually looks really good. but it is also alot different than a 67. it really does stand out though. but once again im not sure if it would look "right" on a 67.

I had my 67 coupe painted original Acapulco Blue. It's not as dark as Presidential Blue. Most automotive paint shops have color books with original color samples. Take the book outside in the sunshine to get a good idea what it looks like.

I'm thinking about putting on a white 68 C-stripe.

I've got some pics on my website.

You guys are probably right, I've owned the car for 24 years and wanted something different, I'll prob. stick with a solid color... here's a pic from last summer, I bought a new hood from ford and it doesn't have the turn indicators, going to start looking for some Torque Thrust D's...prob. 15X7

She's lookin pretty good in that pic. Is that her current state? Where are you located?

Instead of stripes, how about adding some chrome? Rocker panels, wheel opening, trunk lip, etc.

flip down gas cap?

stainless steel tips?

fog lights?

hood scoop?
