Thanks I didn't know that i have seen a few black ones at shows
The Parts Place has the lucite in black, but says for 1967. That said, not sure what the factory differences are between '66 & '67, but my guess is they are the same overall size/placement on the dash. So you may be seeing a '67 bar on a '66 car. So you might just go with a complete aftermarket grab bar for 1967 and us it. This is from Ebay.

First let me make a correction.
The first image is not a 1966.

This is;
Musical instrument Rectangle Font Musical instrument accessory Electric blue

Azure Hood Sleeve Rectangle Gadget


IIRC the Bezels area the same.
So if you want t use the Black aftermarket Lucite backing you will need to use the '67 grab bar as well.

OK, thanks for the clarification and comparison photos.

I knew the handles and the chrome at the base of the grab bars were different from year to year, but I did not think the overall size of the lucite had changed any other than the noted differences. I "assumed" if one wanted to use a different year than the original that you could/would need to swap the entire grab bar handle/lucite.

I like the '67 grab bar handle and its chrome better than the earlier grab handle/chrome. (y)
