I should of been more specific. My apologies. Looking for the padded cigarette ash tray, the heater vent that is located below the rear seat, the 500 emblems that go on the sides forward of the doors. Original radio that has the grooves on the buttons.

I have 4 of the ‘67-8 500 emblems in average condition, a rear seat heater vent and an untested ‘68-9 AM radio. Drop me a PM and I’ll send you some pics. I’m in Virginia and shipping has been harsh lately. Radios are not too light, just warning in case you live in Alaska or California.

I might have an ash tray but what color? And the rear seat heater vent- is that the rear window defroster vent on the hat shelf (I don't have that)? Are you in Hawaii? As Mike pointed out freight this time of year might be questionable.

Just some notes FYI:

There are three styles of radio pushbuttons; the squared off '65-6 style, the '67 waterfall (the grooves you mentioned) style that is level on the bottom, and the '68-9 waterfall style that looks like the '67, except for a teardrop effect on the (profile) leading bottom edge, which makes the button a little bit deeper on the end (a "safety" item, ya know).

Also the rear seat area heater door has two designs, one has a thin mounting perimeter flange, and the second design that adds a 1/8"thick wall around the perimeter flange. Exactly when/if/why they changed I'm not certain.

On the '68-9 padded ash tray cover, getting ripped off is often the case, as no one could figure out exactly how to open it. They also warped badly. Replacement parts were available and I've seen many a factory as well as replacement parts that had been factory painted to match the need.

The 500 fender emblems are the only ones that are installed with adhesive tape instead of the previously used cast-in-stud/speednut desigh used on '68-earlier emblems. Thus the '69 500 is the only LM to have no body holes in the front fenders.
