However there was 124378L300103, Palimino white with a black bench seat, Black V top, with legit Astro windows.

You wouldn't happen to have a pic of the trim tag would you? Real early car.

That would have been correct.  The Astro Ventilation windows were early in the 1968 model year.

Could be someone just liked them and snagged a pair from the bone yard. I got many upgrades for myself and friends from the local yards.

If you see the car again, I'd really appreciate a pic of the tag. Only seen a couple of real early cars with the E after the interior code.
Thanks!

Kurt,
 Is there any very early LA 68's with the 67 style TT in the data base ?

Nope, they have 68 tags, just 67 interior codes. It was almost a rumor until you confirmed it with this car....

Hmm interesting, I'm pretty sure it also had the option codes on the trim tag.

For what it's worth, these are the date codes of my 1968 04A Norwood-built Sport Coupe. It is a survivor, I'm the second owner and have owned it since 1988:
Windshield CZ Nov 67, Back glass LX Mar 68, Driver's door XX Feb 68, Drivers quarter LX Mar 68, Passenger door LX Mar 68, Passenger quarter LX Mar 68. None of the four side windows are marked with Astro Ventilation.
