I have several deluxe interior cars and all have black grab bars. One car, ivory houndstooth, orange houndstooth and blue comfort weave. Quite honestly its not something I've spent time researching, although I have many pictures of unrestored cars that we have certified through Vintage Certification program. At this point I will only provide firsthand examples and then based on the data make a opinion. Below is a picture of my 24k mile survivor and my orig interior 37K mile black rs/z.

Thanks Steve great pictures of great cars. I am curious if there were exceptions to the rules as with other stuff we have dicouvered over time. I agree, I hold John's opinion in high regard as well.

Steve?  Do both those cars have the optional console mounted 8 track players?  *G* Wanna buy some old 8 track tapes? *G*

Yes. Actually four of my cars came factory equipped with console 8tracks. Our twin orange rs/z has a factory 8 track as well as my white 14k mile rs/ss and believe it or not they all work. Thanks for the offer but I have plenty of tapes:)

The console 8 track was a very rare option, I only remember seeing a couple of them in cars over the years since they were new; I probably have some late sixties or early 70's 8 tracks I would give you. if I can find them.. :)

I don't know which interior colors had matching assist handles and which interior colors used black instead; my parts book doesn't show ANY assist handles for '69 (Group #14.655), only for '68.

Thank you for the info John.
