Bowtie color
« on: December 03, 2023, 02:37:51 PM »
I'm new to this so forgive my ignorance....but...
What color should the grill bowtie be?
78 Big 10, Bonanza & Scottsdale.

I just can't seem to find a decisive answer.
Blue or Gold?

Please tell me where you found the info and,
Thanks in advance.

My stock '73 C10 is Yellow (some might see it as gold but looks yellow to me).
'73 Chevy C10, 350, TH350, was a long Fleetside, now she's a short Stepper that's under construction (been in the Family since 1972).

Would rather push a CHEVY than drive a Furd

Mine is yellow with the replacement grill. I plan to change the color in the future.

Not that I have seen. I have never seen a choice in color.

After doing a quick search, there are tons of options for a lighted bowtie.

So....I may or may not monkey around with fab-ing my own. We shall see.
