    I got that picture from Norm when he owned the car and had it for sale. I wondered who bought the it, now I know but somehow I’m not surprised. ;) I’m glad it went to another ‘67 guy. I was attracted to that car because I liked the color combo with the white painted top. If you decide to sell it let me know.

    I find it interesting that Buick still painted the tail panel satin black even on a black car. When I looked at the 9k mile car I took photos of the tail panel but I didn’t think to look at the edge of the trunk lid and the inside edges of the 1/4 panel extensions.

    If you look closely you can see the different shades of black in this pic of the 9K car. 4398fbfc17_2499286.jpg

    That's the only black '67 I have personally seen with original paint. I checked it out really close at the 2008 GS Nats and the owner at that time was kind enough to let me get inside, under it, remove the air cleaner, etc. It's a great reference car. There are several things that have been changed or added (like the rocker moldings, console, & passenger side door mirror) and a couple of thing have been repainted (like the engine) but it's the most original '67 I've seen so far. I found the satin tail panel interesting. I wonder if the car ever found a new home.

    That's interesting. More discussion is bringing out more scenarios. I wish we could ask someone who had first hand knowledge of the whole process.

    Yeah, GS Fred had one like that for sale. I've never seen one on a car in person though.

    100_5326.JPG My car is sapphire and has the blacked out trunk area. My trunk panel is black...no chrome ribs. I believe it was like Rick said, black for GS400 and chrome ribs for Skylarks. That's what I've seen. I'm not sure about the GS 340's. It's like the rocker moldings on 70-72 GS + Skylark. GS's were red, and Skylarks black. They sold them both ways.

    It's funny...I've looked at those pics of the low mile blagk GS many times. I was just looking back through the pics here, and it's the first time I noticed that car has no stripes!

    It has stripes Frank, they're just hard to see sometimes. My car is the same way. It all depends on how the light hits it.
