This is the only pic I could find of them so I cropped it from a larger pic. They were kinda burnt orange color when I pulled them from a 68 Nova I was parting out several years ago.

Satin black if you want to be stealthy. If you want to show them off then yellow or maybe Chevy Orange to match the engine. Heck, you could chrome them!

The welds are probably as bad on these as they are on yours.

Did they ever offer white traction bars? I am getting bored of the yellow but don't want to lose the &quot;day 2&quot; look by going white.

I've seen white ones in old mag. stories from back in the day.
But I can't say for sure if the owners did or didn't paint them.

Here's a couple more shots. They are Very similar. Looks like the shock plate is different. Nice weld on that shock tab.
