    I believe Ed has nailed it.
   That would explain the number matching cranks.
    I didn't know GM just upgraded them by overlaying existing cranks with plastic covers.
    And according to Jerry; I would need pearl/parchment plastic knobs to be factory correct.
    Too bad.....I can't find that color anywhere. NOS or repop!
    Thanx guys
3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / window crank on: November 22, 2009, 08:05:34 PM
   I hope someone can help me.
   I have a 1968 Camaro that I bought from the original owner in 1976. It was ordered with RPO-730 parchment/black deluxe interior.
   The window cranks have chrome metal knobs. The pattern on the knob matches that of the pattern on the base of the crank arm: and the knob is riveted on.
   The window crank arm is stamped #5719477.
    I have always assumed they were aftermarket knobs riveted on to GM cranks.

    My question is - Did GM ever offer on '68 Camaros (or any other of their models prior to 1976) window cranks with chrome metal knobs? Or did I assume correctly?

   So if the restoration houses say "PEARL" they're really talking "IVORY" (711)

   That clarifies it greatly, and then some......thanx Jerry

   And even though my car is a numbers matching unrestored survivor: I had always suspected something was not right with the interior of my car - what with that parchment trim framing the black headliner. It looks totally wrong and totally stupid! But at least now I've got the correct answer to those who doubt whether my interior is original. What was Chevy thinking indeed.

   thanx again,

   I hope someone can help me.
   I own a 1968 camaro coupe with "deluxe" interior. The color is RPO-730 "parchment"
   My question is; what is this "pearl" or "pearl/parchment" that I'm seeing in the restoration market houses? Is this the same color as RPO-730 "parchment" or is it RPO-711 "ivory" or a different hue all together??

Don't forget the "French Connection"
In one scene ,Gene Hackman; a.k.a. "Popeye Doyle"; investigates an accident scene where two young kids are killed.
They total out a brand new 1968 SS Camaro. I can tell it's an SS because of the stacked hood louvers. I can't see the tail panel; to see if it's blacked out or not; so it may or may not be a 396. The movie was released around '68 or '69; so the car was new.
