Never seen one of them before. I must say that stripe package is pretty bad; looks very home made to me.

That ad has the Nickey Chicago logo

I'm not sure of the exact date but Nickey Chevrolet became Keystone Chevrolet in about 1973.

Some of the people from Nickey Chevrolet opened a new business called "Nickey Chicago". They sold hi po parts and did some conversions

I don't mind it too much, but I would have rather seen them use Body Side Moulding Delete (B81) optioned cars, that way no factory side moulding and just the Nickey stripe by itself.

Very interesting! I did not know that, thanks.

Yesterday I went and checked out a recent addition to a local junkyard in South Jersey that I was made aware of. Has the rear spoiler so I thought "could it be a true Nickey car??" "would I be so lucky to find this?" but unfortunately it's not. No evidence of any of the other Nickey stuff, the true delineator was no evidence of hood pins in the radiator support. But fun trip to the junkyard nevertheless. The Camaro type spoiler has been added to 1973 Chevelles on occasion, as I just saw another owner's car who has done it.

I've never seen these before, but I'd love to hear more about them. I'm actually a fan of the colonnade styled Malibus/Chevelles and Lagunas and the known Motion one is especially cool. Thanks for bringing these to the forefront and I look forward to hearing more about them.
