Need to know the color of the 71 Z28 gas tank mounting straps please.
I would search the forum section, I know we had seen body color painted straps that seem to coincide with deluxe interior cars or cars that had the door handle inserts that were body color.
The body color thought comes from the fact that the straps were installed and hanging (but not the gas tank) from the back bolts when the car went through the paint booth. Therefore, the part of the straps close to the tailpan frequently had some level of body color overspray (~2/3 of the strap) on them. This somehow over time morphed into being fully body color. Maybe because the overspray looked like a mistake.
22k mile Huggar orange 04B 70 Z:
Depends on what plant the car was built at.
Van Nuys cars had black straps and were installed after the car was painted.
Norwood straps were black but were installed before the car was painted so they had some levels of body color over spray on them.
