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.

There were 5,661 `68 300 Deluxe 2-door sedan Chevelles built that had the 6 cylinder engine (133278). There were 4,534 `68 Chevelle 300 Deluxe 6 cylinder 2-door sport coupes (133378) built, which yours is one of.

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.
