Re: Need help with bad Invoice Scan

I noticed that the GTA in the link above has pin stipes down the sides of it. I have also noticed this same type of stripe on numerous other GTAs. Was that pin stripe ever an option (I didn't see any mention of it in the window sticker) or just something that was popular to do back in the day?

Re: Need help with bad Invoice Scan

Someone on here had a gta like mine. It had gold stripes down the sides same as the white car in the link. It also had T-tops and paddle mirrors. Also had a 350 V8. The only thing that was wrong with it was the rear spoiler.

Pinstripes were never a factory option just something some buyers chose to add.

Re: Need help with bad Invoice Scan

As Wes said above, the pinstripes were dealer or owner-added. But they were popular back in the day on Firebirds and Camaros alike.

Re: Need help with bad Invoice Scan

Back in the day the dealer would run the stripes on the car try to add like 30-40 bucks for custom stripes.

Re: Need help with bad Invoice Scan

The latest on this:

I tried to get as much info as I could since I thought it may be even harder to get as time goes by.

Contacted PHS and GM Canada Vintage Vehicles.
Both tried to help but could not come up with anything better.
Window sticker can not be obtained.
Unofficial comment agreed with the interpretation of post #17 of this thread.

Tried to track down original dealer but they had been sold.
New owner only wanted 6~7 years of records (which was all they were required to keep by law).
All older records were shredded.

From all I have seen, it appears authentic.
Steveh4263 - this is very helpful to me for comparisson.

Thanks again everyone for all the help.

I made an album here with some pictures.

Re: Need help with bad Invoice Scan

That sucks you can't even get a window sticker. If you could get the sticker it would tell you if it was a GTA. Sorry that you couldn't get the info on the car.
