It may have been cancelled, but we have a lot of documented cars with the D33 option in the database. (My car has it and it's a 05D build.)

A total of 4,740 cars came with this option in 1968. If it was cancelled, they reinstated it at some point during the year.

Hey all,
Sorry to resurface this old thread, but as I read through it I never felt like there was a definitive answer on the grille color change for the late 68 Camaros, and some contradictory statements. I also looked up other threads and couldn't find anything, and no further research on the topic in the research area.

I have a early July 68 Camaro, that I believe was a 350 SS. I can't document that, but I'm building it that way. So for that late model of Camaro, would the standard grille be all black, or black on the outside surface and gray in the middle area, or black on the outside surface area and argent silver in the middle (this is the direction I'm leaning after trying to decipher the comments)? Thanks for any help you can provide.

For a '68 SS the standard grille would be all black, no silver.

Thank you Jon. I just wasn't sure based on a couple posts if that was the case, or the late May - July cars, even the SS 350, were silver in the middle. Much appreciated, I guess mine is correct.

How about a second-week-of-June '68 Z - mine is all argent, but a replacement as it does not have the headlight bucket side brackets installed (since purchased as repops). What should it be ?

Regards,

Silver with the outer black. Just looked at the blue car.

Thanks guy - I'll probably correct it before I re-install it. I have to add the brackets anyway -
