    Does anyone know what year did they change from the metal based ash tray to the plastic one? My 72 has metal one but I may have changed it a million years ago,I remember my 74 in the day having a plastic one.I found a NOS plastic one at a rummage sale of all things and I was going to pop it in my car when I saw mine was metal-Thanks Steve!!

    Not sure when the change was made, but the original ashtray for my 73Z was metal. It's an 01E car.
