How many 69 Brown Vinyl Top cars are documented?  This could be the rarest option yet.

Since I had never seen one with a brown vinyl top I thought I would add a picture or two of a 1969 Camaro with one.  More pictures can be seen on the site where this car is for sale: https://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=203358&country=us

This brown does not look like the sample in the dealer album. OEM almost has a green appearance.

Most of the brown tops came on gold or burnished brown cars. Though one was on a butternut yellow 69.

I think the brown v-top over Champagne would look fantastic.

I know of two cars with that combination. Obviously there were more, but seeing that it was the lowest production color, there weren't many more. :)

Where does this 1798 production of brown vinyl top cars come from? I thought there was no data on colors, just the number of vinyl top cars.

"until recently there was no known production numbers on colors. CRG has obtained a copy of these unpublished production numbers and they are shown here."

Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Kurt. So those are actual percentages and not estimates ? So for example .9% Tuxedo black cars in 68 or .009 x 235,147 (total production in 68) = 2116.23 black cars built in 68 ?  :) Or Ermine white .072 x 235,147 = 16930.584 white cars built in 68.

Is that safe to assume and am I figuring that correctly ? 

I do like the brown vinyl top on some of those colors ! :D

Kurt, were you able to obtain similar official figures on interior color usage, and if so can it be broken down further by combination of exterior and interior?
