    Hi everyone
    I am looking to buy an early barracuda and noticed some have black front and rear glass lock-in strips and others have chrome ones. I believe chrome is the correct one . What is the reason for the black and which is correct. Thanx in advance for all responses

    The factory correct lock strip has "ribs" in it and it does have a chrome/metallic appearance to it.

    The currently available lock strip is metallic in appearance, but does not have the "ribbing" in it.

    Just simply a matter of removing the black lock-strip then re-installing the new one. You do not have to remove the glass or do anything else....

    We do offer a lock-strip tool, part# BW-47000...1963-66 A-body Windshield lockstrip installation tool...$19.95

    I thought that non-chrome was correct, based on mine as the rear glass was never removed and had no chrome..I bought a chrome locking strip to add a little "bling" , but when I removed the original....the non-exposed side was chrome. The new locking strips are different, but look great
