Welome.  I would say that the importance of the wood grain ash tray really comes down to what you are doing with the car.  If you are trying to make a 1000 point correct show car, then it is very important.  If not, then not so important.  However, IMO a black ash tray looks a little goofy when the rest of the center trim is wood grain.

For the hub caps, are you referring to the P01 wheel covers?  My 68 also came with these covers and the emblems are very faded.  I've never seen just the emblems available.  For restoration, contact Bob Mayle at Stainless Trim Restoration (www.stainlessresto.com) to see if he can do them.  He did an incredible job on my exterior trim.  Also keep an eye on e-Bay and Hemmings for a set on NOS covers.

If all else fails, then drop me a line.  Quite a while back I picked up a set of NOS P01 wheel covers to use on my restoration.  I haven't decided whether or not I am going to use them.

The Black ashtray was used from the start of production until sometime in late January or February. possibly as late as March. At that time the Woodgrain ashtray came into production. This is an ongoing CRG report but the last I heard, there wasn't enough info to make an absolute determination. Rich might be able to shed more info on this if there's been any additional info.

The best resourse for a woodgrain ashtray is going to be E-bay. The prices fluctuate from $25-$100 depending on condition. Ask alot of ?s and review the the pics throughly. What you consider nice and the seller considers nice can vary greatly.

E bay is nuts-The last one went for 160 and one on there now is at 190.

You have me confused here. Is it a January 68 or a November 67 car?

Either way, unless it's a very late January car, you should have the black ashtray. And again, we're not sure on the change over date, so it could be as late as March, 1968.

Wow! Almost $200.00 for an ashtray? I'm the original owner of my 68 Ragtop, and it really amazes me how much some parts go for. I hope to experiment with posting a small pic of it soon. I bought it September 11, 1967. Still have the original registration and window sticker. I have a 68 RS/SS 396/375 in my basement as well, and it HAS a woodgrain ashtray! I did not but that one new, I got that in 75. I'm a newbie here, and it's great to see all the posts.

Paul, thanks for that info. Are you absolutly positive it's original to your car?

Rick, can you give me the build date of your SS? I'm also assuming your September car has the black tray?

Anyone else? I'd like to continue this. The only thing I ask is that you're positive the tray is original to your car.

Yes the 68 ragtop is a black ashtray, and not being home I want to say the 68 hardtop is a March 68 date of build.  Maybe I'll put the woodgrain in the Ragtop!
