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  Grin

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

oops 69's are plastic  Wink

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. Huh

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 Roll Eyes

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.

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

That - Brad. Smiley  Don't know why I thought you were down here?
That rear seat is truly a beautiful thing.
One good favor deserves another...
send your address - I will send you one as a gift.

Guys - I am going to do an inventory this weekend  - I am sure I have a few extra pairs.

 Fwiw I used some Tripoli on my old original knob to cut thru grime and buffed em both with white Rouge and they definitely look better than new.

For the record.  I was not trying to jump ahead of anyone.  I was just simply saying, if anyone had any available - I would be interested.

Congrats!!!  I'm glad things worked out for you.

Either way - my plastic ones will serve me just fine, until I locate the correct ones.

I actually think the plastic ones may be correct also.
don't be so fast to change something just because a few people say something.

I know a lot of people who threw stuff away, only to find out years later those pieces -
although not typical, they were still correct, and in some cases even more desirable.

Here's the '67 knob data.  '67's with deluxe interior got the chrome metal knobs.  If it was std interior, they were plastic and color coded to the interior color of the car.

All '68's were plastic and color coded to the interior regardless of std or deluxe interiior.  '69's were all the same, chrome colored plasitc.

Hope this helps,

Jerry

Will have to check my D/B, some might be chrome colored plastic, I'll have to check when I have some time to dig through my notes.

Hey Jerry my car is standard interior but is a Z23 interior (could the chrome knob be part of Z23?) and my car had the chrome metal knob. I am almost certain its polished aluminum from factory because I see no chrome remnants anywhere and aluminum polish shines it right up like new.

Only 1 door had a knob other door knob is mia. I have had this car for almost 20 years and I am pretty sure it has original doors and although it is possible someone could have put metal knob in it before I got it. Anyways they sure look good to be so old after polish.
