I can tell you definitively that my original owner 68 L30/M20 was delivered with a grey plastic grille with the outer area painted satin black and the inner portion painted silver. That's a fact.
The emblem on 68Zproject's car is a standard grille emblem that is 'incorerctly' painted. The standard emblem should have a black bowtie with red vertical recessed stripes - just as shown in both of the pictures that bertfam posted.
Are we saying for sure that both plants LOS and NOR,had gray grills starting around May or Jun 1968?Mine was built in july 68 in NOR and as far as I can tell with pictures from previous owners,the grill always been black.
...a picture of a documented original 68 grille.
I can't say for sure. It's currently under investigation by the CRG, so there may be overlap, or more usage at one plant than the other. I just can't say without more data.
Does anyone actually have any documentation beyond what Ed has said and shown in pictures? I'm not doubting anyone's input --as I said above, change seems to have been the rule of thumb-- but the venues I participate in rely on "factory documentation".
Jeff68, I've sent you a PM.
