OK have to ask my original door lock knob's are metal repo's are plastic ? some say they are supposed to be plastic ?
could this be a build date thing ? early 67's don't have seatbelt retractor's , early car's have metal seat back's , my car is 10E build so could this be why it had metal knob's ? small detail I know but you guy's have already solved all the big stuff  ;D

The original 69 -70 GM pull knobs were ALL plastic.
Metal is repro.

oops 69's are plastic  ;)

67's are metal - the ferules were plastic for the metal door tops that year.
Plastic knobs will not fit into those original ferules -
Similar plastic knobs were used earlier years - but the tops are smaller.

I have collected a ton of door knobs - post a picture of the one you need.
Typically all the Chrome ones in 67 were metal.
The colored ones are always plastic.

OK I am stumped. ???

All the original 67 metal ones have that little separate top attached to them -
almost like it was attached to one of the earlier metal ones - except those are much heaver metal?

The original plastic chrome ones look very similar, and they do fit into the plastic ferules -
And I know these are originals, because I pulled these myself from wrecks.
So maybe both were being used?

All the colored ones are plastic.

So a study needs to be done ::)

There are earlier smaller dish knobs  - those are in plastic and metal too?

Jeff would you look thru your's and see if you have one that's not all scratched up on the shaft part ? one of mine is OK but the other one is all sratched and worn down , I wonder how much it would be to rechrome them (LOL)
if you have one that I could clean up jeff I would like to get one from you ,,,,,Brad

Hi I went out and looked at my original doors and have 1 original chrome metal knobs the other is mia. Is the chrome metal knob part of the Z23 interior decor package? I have black interior w/z23. I always assumed it was plastic but its like Brads 2 piece above.

In addition a magnet will not pick it up so it must be alumninum I dunno but the shaft is so thin walled it couldn't be made of plastic.

The metal ones always polish up perfect.
Brad - you are Chevelle Mikes friend from down here right?

You guys should come by for a visit some Saturday - I could likely be convinced to part with one  :P

hey now ! guy's I asked for one first , Jeff I live in Va. I traded you the original rear seat cover out of my 732 interior remember ?
If you would send me an e-mail I will send my address and pay you with paypal for a good enough door lock knob that I can clean up , the knob's seem to be the same type of thin metal an antenna is made of ?
