I looked at the brochure on their website with picture of stats and it decodes to 501 black ones made. Only 1 with red stripes.

Unless I'm missing something, I'm with Bigfoot in that the stripes from the factory should be black.
The red candy car was a charity car and I think that car was all red in color.

I've found Flemings isn't always 100% accurate with their descriptions of cars.

Either they don’t know anything about what “granular detail” is or they just don’t care.
Or sloppy

I can't imagine that it's a repaint or restripe that is and I don't believe Flemings created that list. And it's susceptible of two interpretations. Was the red one done with red stripes? I'm going to get to the bottom of it though. It merits further inquiry. I do like the red regardless. The car checks out on Carfax re mileage and no accidents though carfax is not infallible.

Out of curiosity, are the stripes reflective?

That I don't know re reflective stripes. The car is slated to arrive on Tuesday by trailer. I also just got off the phone with Ted Britt Ford and they could not confirm or deny veracity of factory red stripes. The mystery deepens. The truth is out there...somewhere. I want the truth! There's anyone's cue for the set up.

I have a 2013 School Bus Yellow LS. I was trying to research the reflective stripe material to do some graphics to match. My research concluded you could not get that material anywhere as it was made special just for the LS cars. I might start there, as if it's reflective it might be something "special" from the factory. If they are not reflective I would be guessing aftermarket.

The hockey stick seem all black on the cars. I wonder where the prior owner found red though they appear factory. Still checking.

All the bosses of 2013 have black stripes that I can see. That gives rise to the presumption this car had black stripes and red is aftermarket. I'm okay with the red though. Someone must've gone crazy with a hair dryer trying to peel off the black. I'm still checking.

I have only seen 2 types of Black Reflective Vinyl, one turns White and the other Turns Gold.  I put Black Reflective Graphics on my 2000 Gold Mustang and when you looked at it at certain angles, the Stripes disappeared.  I believe the 1969 BOSS 302's had the Black stripes that turned White.

Maybe the car went through Gas Monkey. Remember the black Ferarri F-40?
