Not even close.....

The only correct versions are reproduction's from most GM restoration supply houses....

There are differences with the brass rivet in the middle of the top cap......67 / 68 had a flat top rivet, but the 69 has a "divet" in the top of the rivet head.......(or is it the other way around).......

The ears on the one you show from ebay are too small.....

Hope that helps...

Even though these are listed for 66, 67 & 68 (maybe he meant 69) are they close to what I need for 69? BTW... I SHE WA WA  :o  must be made of gold.

Jeff's a good guy.  I don't know where I bought mine, but I know I paid a lot less.  Maybe that's what they go for now.

At this point I was just trying to get a visual. There is a big swap meet down here this weekend (big for NM  :-\). If I can't find what I'm looking here I'll follow up on your leads.

Thanks again guys!
