Quick Refresher
« on: October 14, 2019, 10:06:18 PM »
I’m having a brain fart this afternoon.  Early 68 with deluxe interior should have a black smooth ashtray or textured black ashtray.?.?

It is sorta.  It says the default is black textured on the center dash trim but I wanna make sure a deluxe interior car didn’t have a smooth finish on the tray.  Can anyone confirm?

“Black textured trim was the default for the center dash panel on 1968 Camaros. But ordering either a console, special interior trim, or custom interior added walnut woodgrain to the center dash panel. (The grain of the applique is vertical - Firebird used the horizontal woodgrain.) But the ashtrays on earlier woodgrain cars were black, in contrast to the rest of the center panel. In the Feb/March 68 timeframe at both plants, the ashtray changed to a woodgrain ashtray that matched the center panel.”


FWIW.....My 01D ‘68 has the black ashtray.

Is it deluxe interior?  Is the tray textured or smooth?

08E LA built with 749 interior and a smooth black ash tray.
I do not recall seen a original textured tray in a 68.

Here's one. A VERY early Norwood base coupe. No console, no Z23, no Z87. This is the "textured" 3919123 ash tray.
