    Was there a pinstripe option on the Fleetwoods?

    I've spent the better part of 6 months searching for a 94-96 Fleetwood, and more than a couple have featured a pinstripe just below the chrome molding along the sides. Was this an option, or did people just generally decide there should be one right about there and add them? Just curious.

    No, the chrome strip replaced the pinsriping. Someone added the pinstripe after.

    It could also possibly be a dealer add-on.

    One of our local Cadillac dealers still does that with the new cars today. I don't see many newer cars with pinstriping, but they had several on the showroom floor with it, including a CTS and a CTS Wagon. The pinstriping was very tastefully done, IMHO...a subtle touch. I thought it looked really nice. They told me they will do this with any car, if the customer desires (for a nominal fee, I'm sure).
