"68" Steering Column Cover

Can any one post a picture or confirm for me what is the correct steering column cover for a "68" the Zazarine book does not have a picture. Ames catalog does not carry one for "68" and OPGI says the cover is the same 68-72

The one on my car looks like the 69-70 in the Zazarine book.

Thanks

John

I can't find any pics from my files, but here is a photo from the OPGI catalog:



The part shown is correct for 68.

Thanks,
I saw that part. I think that attaches at the bottom of the dashboard. I am looking for the part that goes on the firewall and over the carpet. I bought the 69-72 from Ames. Should be here today or tomorrow. Will see.

The 68 has more one year only parts on them that most other years. It's the red headed stepchild when it comes to finding parts.
