Re: 1968 Chevelle 300 Deluxe

07D=4th week July 1968 production
FRA and G =Framingham, Mass assembly plant
TR 762=Black vinyl bench seat
G-G=Ash gold, top & bottom

There's no way to know how many cars were built with a certain color or options, and there's absolutely no way to know how many of them survived.
Someone can tell you how many 300 Deluxes were built (I can't access my info right now), but there's no breakdown for colors or options.


If you keep on livin', you're gonna get old.
Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
Good livin' will speed it up, but it's worth it.

Re: 1968 Chevelle 300 Deluxe

The information provided by the previous posters is probably is about as specific as you are likely to find.

Base strictly on imperical observation there were many cars with manual drum brakes & power steering. Power steering is a bit obscure on a six-cylinder car though. Countless sixes have been yanked in favor of V8s for decades.

If you have it, it doesn't matter.
If you don't have it, it doesn't matter.
