soo...I seen a couple of coronets with the stripe around the rear of the car....
mine is a 67 500 model with the big trim down the side, but I have still seen it on a car or two and think looks good and different.
did any 67's come out with the rear stripe? only RT's? or?
any pics? thanks guys.

67's did not come from the factory with a rump stripe on them.

This going to be a question you'll get 3 answers to. 1) Do it, it looks cool. 2) Don't do it, it looks ugly. 3) It's your car, do what you like.

I'm of the #3 crowd.

Yep, it's your car do whatever. I would not do it to my '67 though.

my 2 cents: do not add a stripe.

My opinion is #2 but I'm going to say the politically correct #3.

I'll be politically incorrect and just say, "don't do it". These days its rare to see any 67 500 that still has it's side trim, and to make the 68 and up style bumble bee stripe look okay on a 67, you would really need to remove the side trim, and fill all the holes before repainting the car. Personally I like the 67 Coronet 500 side trim, and hate seeing it disappearing off the sides of 67 Coronets. Yes, people will put the bumble bee stripe on a 67 (as Chip Foose did on Overhaulin), but 68 was the first year any bumble bee stripes were used by the factory. Although I've seen the bumble bee stripes applied to just about anything Mopar, from 60's Barracudas and Chrysler Newports, to station wagons, I personally don't think it looks good on anything before the 68 model year.

Poor picture quality, but heres a TV commercial for the 67 Dart and 67 Coronet RT convertible. The RT convertible in the commercial has the optional 67 side stripe.

Meanwhile, you can view TV commercials for the 67 500 hardtop and the 67 500 convertible here (since we're talking about the 67 500).

Thanks Jim, notice at 4:44 you will see a recall wheel with the horn buttons in the spokes.

Now that I like. At least there is some precedence for the stripe. It's like a 'This is what they should have followed through with why didn't they" look. Much more 'of the time' than a bumble bee stripe.

Personally I do not like the rump stripe on the '66's and '67's but it's your car...

I'm not a fan of the 1968 and up Bumble Bee stripes on any of the pre 1968 cars, especially the 1966 and 1967 Coronets, but that's just one guys opinion. I would also agree with those who really like the 1967 Coronet 500's side trim. The yellow 67 500 below is just a stunning car in my opinion and if I owned one, that trim would stay on the car without any question.

As others have said, if you want to add one of these stripes to your car, you should do so, because at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter what anybody else thinks right? ;)

now on to wheels and tires and the attitude of the car

my opinion is anything bigger than 16" wheels on a muscle car is to big.

For me, first choice would be the chrome magnums that were optional in 67, but moving up from the standard 14" to a 15" size would be okay. Second choice for a 60's Mopar would be Torque Thrust wheels, and third would be a set of the original style Hurst rims.

I personally like a period correct look if you decide to get away from a stock look, this is a pic of my car if it helps with any ideas.

There was a stripe available for the Coronets that ran between the wheel wells - down low near the rocker panels - that had a wide middle stripe and a smaller one on top and bottom of that - the word DODGE went behind the front wheels in place of part of the middle stripe - not sure if it was a dealer installed option or factory - those style of 3 stripes was really popular back in the '60's.

Those were factory installed, I've seen only 2 cars with them!
