Default Factory Pontiac “Pinstripes”

The pinstripes on a GTO or 2+2 were first offered in 1965. The base model cars did not offer the factory stripes.

You were allowed to delete the pinstripe at the buyers request by writing across your new order form, “Do Not Apply Paint Stripes”.

The very early build ‘65 cars (Aug./Sept.‘64) had the pinstripe applied by hand.
Member Keith Seymore Sept. build GTO is a perfect rare example, Original Black body with hand painted Red pinstripes.

One can only imagine the labor involved with this hand application.

Somewhere around late Sept. or early Oct. ’64 the “Beugler” tool became the efficient means for pinstripes.

The application varied a little with the Beugler tool depending on the plant.

Tape was applied at both ends of doors and the seam at the tail light extension.
This would allow the paint “wheels” to travel smoothly down the body.
The tape was quickly removed, but oftentimes the wet stripe paint would bleed into the tape leaving behind a small defect.

A 1965 2+2 receiving it’s dual pinstripes while GTO’s are waiting in line.
Next up, ‘65 GTO getting it’s single stripe.

Chris.

Default Another Survivor paint car.

This ‘66 GTO was built at the Fremont plant (01B).

Cameo Ivory with Red stripes.

As I mentioned earlier, the application varied from plant to plant.

Obviously they used a wider tape at the seams which allowed for a wider gap in the stripe.

Notice the “ribbed paint wheel marks” and the paint bleed out at the tape in the last photo.

I doubt you see this on a high end restoration.

Survivors are the best, an encyclopedia.

Default 1967 Factory dual pinstripes

Here are a couple ‘67 GTO’s with their factory stripes.

You can really see where that tape was allowing the paint to bleed out.
Also the Beugler wheel marks in the last photo, top stripe.

Factory stuff.

Great thread! Here are the pinstripes on my ‘67 GTO survivor...
the stripe wraps around the fender/door gap on the driver’s side, but not on the passenger side.

The paint touch-ups were done by the elderly original owner... I know they could use a bit of wet sanding and polish.
