Ken Updike's article in Heritage Iron on the 1066 black stripes states that Greg Montgomery came from Ford in 1975 and designed the black stripe decals. In 1975 the F-150 explorer package had a similar stripe. Coincidence???

That seemed to happen a lot back in those days. Similar to Bunkie Knudsen going from Ford to White Motor, and he was the one who was behind the styling of the then new White tractors. Notice the hood ornament looks very similar to a Lincoln emblem? Kinda cool reading how these Car company guys came over to the tractor side.
