Yea..What proof do we have that O means a paint color change? Again are we forced to default to the past and other groups that make claims but cannot devulge their sources? Maybe every O car has another code as well? a dash or a COPO code? Regardless.. Maybe O-coded cars with non standard colors also recieved special attention because they had to be painted in the available TRUCK ENAMEL requireing a torturous color sanding? I don't know: just agreeing that somethings askew

It would be nice to know if there was extra paint applied when they planned on wetsanding a show car finish. I just can't imagine the standard enamel paint being thick enough to withstand a color sanding, and heavy buffing. Then couple that with the poorer abrasive compounds and most likely 600 grit was the finest wetsand paper in 1967, it just seems so unlikely a procedure to be done at the plant. Wonder if the cars were taken off site for this procedure, if indeed it did happen?

Personally, I am so tired just from reading all of this and languising over the time and money you guys have spent, that I really don't know what white my car will be when it's ready for paint. I am giving serious thought to a black
0-1 Pacer Big Grin Let's just drink lots of beer and forget the whole white paint thing! Cheers

Well said Gary! BTW, if you paint your 0-1 black, it will be the second known 0-1 pacer that is black over black. Eeker

I think another Myth is about to be debunked

LOS car 0-2 Hard top, with a dash after the 5th group, and a code?

Why don't we hire some guy from the CIA that spent his youth deciphering codes during the cold war to unravel this paint code as well?
LOL Big Grin

My two cents worth, O for enamel, 1 for ermine white. C for laquer, 1 for ermine white. Maybe it is as simple as that??? Sutho.

Something I don't understand here is if the trim tag is a record only of the options and modifications that would have pertained to the time spent in the Fisher Body part of the plant, does this mean the 0-1 pace cars completed the assembly process in the Chevrolet portion of the plant, and were then sent back to Fisher for a color sand and super buff? This seems highly unlikely. It would seem more likely these cars would have been polished during final prep in Indianapolis, just before delivery to the speedway.

I think extreme caution has to be taken not to try and make exceptions to known protocol, to make the trim tags fit the pace cars. Unless known protocol is going to be changed, and now we are going to accept that the trim tag does not indicate only Fisher manufacturing codes.

Its obvious to me that the tag was read by both ends unless the dash does NOT mean blue nose stripe and unless the Chevy guys strickly read the piece of paper that was taped to the cowl. I would guess that Fisher was responsible for buffing the body and Chevy the nose before chrome and emblems were installed ( under my door handle gasket shows wetsand marks),

The dash could very simply have been there to tell the Fisher guy its special somehow and for all to carfully read the paper sheet taped below ( line sheet, build sheet)

Has anyone else ever noted any wetsand scratching on their 0-1 car? Anyone who has ever wetsanded and buffed a fresh paint job would realize you need to heavy buff the paint before installing the gaskets and handles so there will be no chance of damaging the gasket or the belt molding along the window. This is a real mystery on your car.

Do any 0-1 build sheets exist?

That 0-2 coupe on eBay blows holes in most that has been thought about the " - ". 0-2

Here's a thought. Obviously if there is a normal paint code letter on the tag they know what color to paint the car. So if a car were to recieve a non-standard paint code, i.e. a "0", how do they know what color to paint the car? They obviously would have to refer to some paperwork with the car to determine that. So if you had a "special" car that you would want special attention paid to, such as a non-standard color or maybe, just MAYBE a standard color but applied in a non-standard way (show quality finish????) how would that be indicated? That info would have to be in the cars paperwork. By putting an "0" on there it requires additional attention for additional special intructions?

P.S. In other words the dash has nothing to do with paint color, stripe color etc. The "0" covers that. The dash only has something to do with a Fleet, COPO, mechanical type things?

With the fact that direct questions were not answered.....

We are supposed to except the recreation of the wheel?

Most available info or facts can be interpreted or even spun into what you want it to mean!!

That certainly is a dash after the 5Y. Hope someone don't buy it and make the first ever blue nose pacecar coupe? confused
