Does anyone know, when were lines first placed on the Ford Mustang GT?

Does anyone know, when were lines first placed on the Ford Mustang GT and what are the classic design of the lines?

See my husband and I are ina controversy. We have a Mustang GT 2006. He wishes to place the 2 wide lines on the car, because he says that this is the classical design for a Mustang GT. I on the other hand prefer no lines, but if he is going to put lines on the mustang I prefer that hey be the one that is 1 wide line in the middle and 2 thin lines on each side of the wide line. He (my husband) says that this is not part of the classical design.

Can anyone please shed some light on this matter?

Your right for the side of the GT, he's thinking of the Shelby's 65-68 over the roof

The 65 Shelby Mustangs had the 2 wide lines up the hood, roof and trunk.

I think it was around 1966 or so, give or take a year. The first ones were the ones down by the rocker panels. Then came the ones on the hood. Especially on the Shelby's.

To double check do a search on net for the history on the mustang and then you should be able to look at the different year models and determine what you want on the car. good luck.

They are classic in nature in the sixties shelby mustangs. I think that the dual stripes are played out on the new mustang, but hey its not my vehicle. Who drives it more? That is who should decide what it looks like.

actually both styles are from 'back in the day'

dual over the top stripes that go all the way to the ground are, indeed a classic look. i do them quite often on new mustangs. usually, i do a vinyl stripe so that stone chips and such don't ruin the car.

i like the fat stipe with the thin stripe surround better myself, but customers always seem to want the dual over the tops.
