Just to be clear, we're looking for data from blue, red, and gold interiors without woodgrain ashtrays. Data from black dash/interior cars is not relevant.
Thanks folks

Jim, Any chance you have a photo of the dash behind the ash tray with the woodgrain surround on?

My car is close to this one as well. 1968, LOS, 01C build date, 722 Gold interior. Wood grained instrument panel but smooth black ash tray. Gold interior. The pictures I had of it from early in 1987 before I changed it to a black interior got lost long ago so no images of that combo to share. Do you blame me for wanting to ditch a "custom" brown diamond tuck and shag carpet interior in a hurry?

No, but you are guilty of not going back to Gold. But I get it, it's easier sometimes.

Thatís one.  Is it painted black around the opening like the gold dash I posted above?  Also is the ashtray smooth or pebble?  Am I correct in assuming this is born with and not restored?

I am thinking the dash area of the ashtray being painted black on a colored I dash is part of the data they are looking for.  Sometimes the researcher are vague about what they are looking for in order to not taint the data.

So that leaves me wondering if colored ashtray cars had colored dash in that area or black. I assumed color ashtrays would have colored dash area, but maybe not?
