Good looking car. Did it have the side stripe originally? If I missed it already being discussed then my apologies.

Thanks Tim. Still have a nice punch list to work through.
Yes it is a Framingham car. Sold new at Monument Chevrolet Somerville Ma.
As far as I can tell it did not have a stripe. I have pictures of the car from 1972 and there are no stripes. I spoke to the second owner and he told me he did not remember stripes. I have a partial build sheet and I did not see it listed.

I used to work for Penn Central Railroad back in the early seventies right next to the GM plant in Framingham some of the Oldtimers used to tell stories about the guys at the plant who parked the cars after they came off the assembly line in the late sixties they would race on Western ave in front of the plant on the night shift when nobody was around.
