Dan,

What I found about the panels (and the ashtray) is from the 1968 "Major Appearance and Performance Option" sheet (attached). It states that you received the woodgrain dash panel if you got either the Z87 (Custom Interior) or the Z23 (Special Interior Group) options. I've gone through my books and can definately say that yes, the woodgrain panel started at the begining of the 1968 model year. I can also safely say that even if you DIDN'T order the Z87 or the Z23 options, but DID order the D55 Console, you again got the woodgrain panel. Only cars without Z87, Z23 or D55 got the black panel, and it appears that this continued until the end of the production run. Note that the attachment states you also received the "Smooth black ashtray faceplate", so that confirms what you stated above. There's no date on this sheet, but I do know it's early. Probably written before the 68 release.

Hey Ed,

Great thread  ;)
  ...so, ...if I've absorbed all 4 pages here, ...my NOR 04C '68 (according to the data you have) would have the woodgrain ashtray?.
  ...but it doesn't, ...I've got the smooth black one.
   I purchased my car unrestored in the mid 80's, ...with all the interior very original (only replacing the bucket seat upholstery and door panels). I do have a couple 'spare' woodgrains, so that's not a problem, ...but I won't switch out the black tray just yet...

I thought I would alert anyone who might be looking for a nice original (GM) wood grain ashtray that there is one listed on eBay at this time at the above link. It appears to be in really nice condition. As of this post it was up to $127.50 with the reserve yet to be reached! No, I'm not the one selling it. Good luck!

Alright guys,

I'm still on the hook for a smooth one! That was a great reference page as to what goes with what. Now, unfortunately for me I spoke to soon. I spent two days at the swap meet and came home without a smooth one (KevinK, you want to sell yours? ;-). Anyway, glad to finally get the straight scoop on this. Thanks, Dan

I paid $105 for mine about 2 years ago (off the Team Camaro site). I cringed at the time but someday we'll probably say, remember when you could get one for "only" $200? Hopefully smooth ones aren't that bad. Any sellers out there? Thanks, Dan

Hi All -

   I looked at a 04D Los Angeles built '68 RallySport "survivor" today. I pulled out the wood grain ashtray and checked the numbers just for "kicks":
      M
1A27762

Same number as the other wood grain ashtrays posted on this thread. I just thought I would post this info for the CRG database. Every little bit helps.

Hi Paul,
Heck if you read this auction the guy is a out for the money because he claims last one sold for just under $200 so his must be worth that or more.
Sounds like BJ auction price to me - shilling :o
What about the preservation of the classic car.

My 02C Los Angeles built Z/28 has a wood grain ashtray with these numbers/letters stamped on the bottom:
      M
1A27762
Hope this helps!

Paul

I have a satin black ash tray with same PN# 1A27762 but I don't know what it came from. It could be from a 67 Firebird I dunno.

I'm looking for a woodgrain ashtray for my '68 Camaro...   Been watching eBay and the prices seem to keep going up.  There is one on there now with 1 bid and a starting price of $160.00.

Looking at Ricks' Fall/Winter 2007 catalog this morning I noticed on page 34 they offer a '68 dash ashtray, woodgrain.  There is no price and they're not open today.  Anyone know what these are going for and if someone is finally reproducing them?

here's the info.

These '68 woodgrain ash trays keep getting more expensive every couple of months.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&viewitem=&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fsearch.ebay.com%3A80%2F270217916272_W0QQ_trksidZm37QQfromZR40QQfviZ1&item=270217916272

this used one just sold for $228.01.

I guess I'll just keep the black one that's in my car...
