I remember Ford sold a limited number of replicas through dealerships.

That stripe was available on the Pinto, too. Somehow it wasn't quite as cool.

This, of course, was merely the semi-delirious notion of a fever-patient, but I remember that it struck me at the time as being eminently practical and feasible.

Yeah, I've seen some of those at car shows.

I recall seeing a couple in my youth. I even remember seeing a green Torino with that stripe. Can't speak to whether it was factory or not.

It was interesting how they applied that stripe at the factory. They actually painted the whole car white first, then put a mask over the stripe area and painted the rest of the body red. I guess that way they didn't have to worry about red bleeding through the white.

Totally makes sense. How did you know that, Moby?

There was a show I've seen on Netflix recently where one character drove a "Starsky & Hutch" Torino... I can't recall the name of the show, but it was a "Doctor & Hospital" themed show my wife used to binge-watch.
I thought it was quite surprising that they actually drove the car, and occasionally even smoked the tires...

The perils of binge watching.

I read it in an article somewhere, likely around the time the movie came out.

I'm rather surprised that they'd do that sort of individualized paintwork prior to assembly at the factory...

The paint shop is where the paint shop is on the assembly line.

The mask was a big template that fit over the top of the car.

The Ford Nationals at Carlisle, PA has/had a specific class for those. IIRC in past years they would have 6-12 show up.

Normally, those S&H Torinos look super cheesy to me. That one is pretty awesome, though.
