    I graduated high school in 1970 and I remember them as being semi shiny but my buddy had a yellow Z28 and he never waxed the back panel. That was a long time ago and I would not put any money on my memory. I'm going to do mine shiny semi gloss.

    Just had a thought. Possibly if someone can get their paint chips chart out from 1970, 1971 & 1972 from Ditzler and other paint manuf., maybe the SS rear panel paint code would be listed there? I have a 1974 Ditzler paint chips chart for chevy and shown there is the listed paint code for trunk interior. That's the only place I ever saw that in print.

    Found a 1970 RM Chevy paint chips chart. Nothing in print about SS rear panel, only Z28 stripes. 1970 Chevy paint chips_RM.jpg

    I can't make out the print, what does it say for black stripe color... A-946? Same as Tuxedo black?

    For the stripe colors:
    A-946 Black
    A-1802 White
    I don't know about tuxedo black since its not on chart. Maybe black was available as special order option for Chevy line.
