I'm not sure what the correct name is for them...

so was hoping maybe you guys could point me in the right direction..

Im  sure you will know what I'm talking about but I've attached a picture


any help at all would be great...

Cheers Dave....

Hi, RSD. They are called louvers. Classic Industries sells them.

those exact one in the picture were made by cragar way back in the day. they no longer make them. classic industries makes similar ones, but i personally do not like them.

The interpart brand aluminum louvers from the 1970's are usually the most desired but they are not produced new anymore. If you search on ebay for louvers (firebird,trans am) you will spot some used louvers for sale.  Look for decent used ones that are not dented, dinged or twisted and you can repaint them as needed.

Black with orange/red decals is what I've had in mind for some time to do on my '79 (someday... :? ). I had been planning/buying towards a black interior. Lately, I'm leaning towards a tan (Camel) interior. Any opinions on that interior clashing with the decal color I mention?? I kinda' worry that it might not look right.....
Title: rear window blinds
Post by: Rick on January 07, 2007, 12:01:14 AM
I'd be down with the orange/red decals and the black exterior, and the camel interior with the black exterior would work -- but I dunno about the orange/red decals and the camel interior combo.  Maybe it'd work OK, but...well...have you dug through the pics from the Nats to see if there were any like that?  Ooops -- that's right -- those pics are all gone, lost in the flames of the TAC crash... :(  :cry:

I'm telling you guys, this crash is gonna HURT -- sooner or later it's going to sink in, and that's going to be UGLY.

Jeff, I'd try searching to see if you can find any cars with that combo now to see how it'd look.
Title: rear window blinds
Post by: RENOVATIONS on January 07, 2007, 10:10:12 AM
Yeah, I need to try and Photoshop something I guess as I have seen very few T/A's with that exterior color combo, let alone any with tan interior.

I feel it wouldn't look right. :?

I know it's not one of the combos you mentioned, but what about red interior?  8)
Title: rear window blinds
Post by: RENOVATIONS on January 07, 2007, 07:39:08 PM
Actually that was the original color of the interior (Carmine). No offense to anyone but I hate red interiors. I bought it/drove it with red for 10 years and don't wanna' see a red dash in my face again  :lol: .

Car was factory issued Platinum silver ext. and Carmine red int. Nothing particularly special about the '79 (WS6, 403, etc.) so I plan to do what I want with it whereas the '77 SE is going back as stock (if/when).

If I go with black ext, a tan interior nearly limits me to gold decals IMO and I don't want to end up with two black/gold 'birds. By the same token, I don't want both cars to have black int. Who knows, who cares...it's all a ways off. :lol: Keep the opinions coming... :wink:

I wish I had done the work on it rick..... but I cannot take the credit for that..


Im actually picking the car up of a friend of mine on another website in the UK....he has only just recently imported it  from North Carolina...around two months ago and then fell into some financial troubles...... (mostly to do with a woman)....I'm sure you know where that story is going to go to...

anyway he offered the TA  to me..........and I just could not help myself   :D



and I'm sure I dont need to tell yA  that TA,s are a rare bird on this Little Rock I live on...

Thanks for the pix, RSD. I have nothing against red interior, it's just not for me. Yours is identical to what mine is/was minus the stick shift. Gotta' love the unmistakeable "bulk" of 454 heads...NICE!! :shock:

Here's a pic I have of the color scheme I'm thinking of...same as yours??

(http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n236/79ws6resto/17_1.jpg)

This is what mine looked like when I bought it and drove for 10 years, right up till I started gutting for resto.

That flame job is great Jeff.  8)  I suppose you're not going to repaint the flames are you?? :(
Title: rear window blinds
Post by: RENOVATIONS on January 08, 2007, 09:54:36 PM
No more flames though I gotta' admit they are what caught my eye originally. I was driving a grey-primered '76 T/A when I saw it/bought it.

As cool as it was, I'm over the flame job long ago. Maybe why I'm considering black with the orange/red decals..... kind of a tribute to the car that "was". :?

Where would you order a "shaker" like that one?? I've seen them in Playboy and Penthouse, but they don't give you a price or cost of shipping.  :?  :wink:  :twisted:

With a "shaker" like that, there's always a price to pay :shock:

How about a white Interior? Or a black Interior with white seat covers? That would look cool, and blend well with the other colors on the car.
