1978 620 Deluxe "Side Accents"


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, first time posting but I've been lurking for about a year. I own a 1978 620 Deluxe and I'm curious if anyone has information on what I'm calling the "side accents" for 620's, as I have on my truck. I'm planning on a frame off restoration that won't exactly be back to stock, but close to it. I've decided to include the side accent stripes which I'm going to have a local vinyl graphic sign company copy and reverse engineer. My question is, what do you all know about these accent stripes? I'm a history nerd so I guess that explains why I'm so curious as to their details. Anyway, thank you in advance for your responses, Happy Holidays.

Do you know the paint color code for your truck. Probably a sticker on the radiator support near the hood prop???


Closest matching colors are Dk Brown/ Lt Brown 99990-00338 lists... 01 hood, 02 left hand and 03 right hand. It's suitable for paint codes ....







Surely you must know Flatcat https://ratsun.net/profile/5669-flatcat19/ (Kieth) in Pasco or Soundline https://ratsun.net/profile/46324-soundline/.

I too am curious about the graphics on my truck. However, mine are definitely painted on. It appears to be very well done and, although funky, doesn’t seem funky enough for a one-off custom job. Around the time I saw my truck on ebay, I believe a saw another one with the same paint scheme. So, these two things lead me to think this was a factory option or maybe one dealer in California was doing them. Who knows!


I'm just looking forward to someday buffing it all out and shining it up - its all still remarkably intact.
