Saw this for sale today right near my house, and because it’s nearly identical to my 70 Z, I stopped to look at it. I’ve read up a lot on the correct stripes, I’ve seen this done before but never seen anything to indicate it was correct. What I’m referring to is where the nose stripes terminate at the front, on the inner corner I believe it should be a curve, not a sharp turn.
Very sharp car, great paint, white interior looks wrong and the green dashpad is definitely wrong. Z/28 emblems are all brand new which just looked suspicious to me. Not interested in buying another one, just being nosy and I’d love to be better at identifying a clone.
Btw, they’re asking for $30k 1973 with 350/400

My friend has a 73 Z/28 and it looks like this, but I’ve always thought it was wrong. I know he had them repainted when he put a cowl hood on, and he had the body shop redo them because they came out wrong the first time, something about the stripes having no taper. Idk why you wouldn’t look up some reference photos or GM manual or something. Especially when the body shop owner is a camaro guy. Owns two 69s and a 67.

I used the GM spec sheet out of the build manual as per attached.

Due to the cowl hood, I did not use a stencil kit and laid it out with 1/4” fine line tape following GM specs.

As bodymanbill states above, should be rounded to be correct.

If this "38k mile survivor" with it's as noted original paint shows is indeed true, it does follow/support the GM spec sheet I attached a few post's ago.

FWIW, I obviously know now that my "hand laid" stripes are too large of a radius on the inside turns.
