    Would a B7 blue car have been blacked out behind the grille?

      Don't you dare go over my beautiful blue paintjob hahaha! I remember seeing one hemi 68 Runner that was my cars color (E1) and it had the blackout done and looked pretty original to me. Not positive though.

      It looks better if you do. B7 should have gotten the treatment but it depends on who was on the line that day. There was a discussion about that not too long ago if I can find it.

              Black cars received the blackout as well........just because the car is black didn’t mean it automatically didn’t get the treatment.....that’s something people have rolled on because it sounds good but is not correct.......

              Both of my original 69’s from two different plants received the blackout. One a true survivor and both were black cars......

                  This is what you get if it's not painted.
                  I really don't need to see all the stuff behind the grille. LOL

                      My 69 GTX has B5 behind the grille and headlights. No issue with seeing behind.
