Could someone please let me know if steel seat back panels  would have been used on a 02E 1968 Z28. I have had my documented Z judged many times and always the judges deduct points because they seem to think only 1967 cars had them and all 68s had the plastic ones. For my own info. does anyone 2nd my thought. Thanks again

My 02C '68Z has plastic seat back panels.  They are factory original.

My Z/28 is also a Los Angeles built car and has never left the state.  It still sports it's original California black license plates.  It has the custom interior (code 730) with headrests, so I don't know if that would make any difference.

Thanks for the info.I have heard that the metal could have been used up until the 2nd week of march with the plastic backs in early February being put into production. I had a 02C car years ago and it was steel backs. Who knows today with all the urban myths.on these cars. Thanks again maybe our cars ran across each other at the factory.

I had an 03A car that had metal backs and an 04A car that had plastic backs. Both were 67 deluxe interior cars from LA. I always wondered when the change occured.

I have an 07C 1967 car (NOR) with plastic seat backs.  My understanding was that the metal seat backs were a 67 only thing.
