Stripe color ????

My car is Brittany blue and originally came with a black vinyl top and black interior.
Would that confirm the original stripes would have been black.
The previous owner put a white vinyl top and I believe white stripes on it.

Thanks
Bruce

Bruce,
Yes most likely the stripe would have been black.

Yes with a black top and interior I believe that the stripe would be black. We have a Brittany blue car with a black interior no vinyl top that has white stripes.

I am not sure if the stripe color was predetermined by Ford or it was a buyers choice. Marti reports tell us nothing. A build sheet may have some answers. I would love to a GTCS dealer order sheet. That would give us the answer.

Well if you find one let us know, I have the highland green with black top and black interior and would be curious to know. Although white seems way more obvious than a black stripe for visibility purposes. But its still an interesting topic.

I can not imagine not using a white stripe on Highland Green regardless the top color. Gold stripe looks good but not original.

I agree with Marti about black on Highland Green - never seen one, but there is an Acapulco Blue R-code with black stripes.
