    New to the post & was wondering if anyone out there is reproducing or has the original dimensions for the 1974 Buick Apollo GSX front & rear decals & the black & white side stripe. I'm getting ready to start a complete restoration on my 1974 Buick Apollo GSX all number matching original 53,000 mile car but the car was painted back in the early 80's when the stripe & decals must not have been available. My car is the original red no vinyl top, 350 cid Buick engine power brakes,power steering, tilt wheel, & AC. The interior is white bucket seats with black door panels & carpet. Any information would be much appreciated.

    Thank You,

    Jenny :cool:

    As far as I can tell there is no one do'ng Apollo stripes, Phoenix graphics is not doing them, then I have now gone to photos and am having local graphic shop redo my decals, no one is making skins for apollo either on buckets, the ribbs inseat are different than nova or pontiac buckets. dont lose your seats, have re upholstered in same ribbs, craig

    I scaned an original set that still has the paper on them and was able to have them re-made several years ago when I was building my GSX. I think I gave away all my extra sets. I will try to contact the vendor and see if he still has them in his files. Sorry, I don't have the strips.

    you would be wonderful. I have so looked for a vendor or member of which may have had a set of decals. trunk / hood / and buick, would this also be the decal for the front fender a good rubbing with charcoal or pencil will be fine if you can do fender at porthole decal.

    I have a NOS center trunk stripe decal if that helps. It measures 1/2 inches high, white in the center with black outlines top and bottom. Not sure if that was same size as the side stripes or not?

    how about the under hood decals, like the emission decal and the air filter decal on the air cleaner. I don't necessarily need the decals, just a good pic of them off of a 1974 Apollo.
    Thanks

    this is an example of the air cleaner decal, off of a Skylark, I think

    Has anyone found a company that sells the 74 GSX stripe kit yet? I have messaged Phoenix graphics to try and talk them into making one a couple times. They just responded back they didn’t make them at this time and that’s it.
