don't take these figures as 100% accurate

total '68 r/t 17584 
auto 14366
no color breakdowns

records were kept in %, so give or take on the actual numbers

disc brakes - 18% - 3165
power windows - 9.5% - 1670
am radio - 75.1% - 13206
a/c - 32.8% - 5768
tinted glass/all - 44.4% - 7807
center seat - 20.4% - 3587
remote mirror driver - 68.8% - 12098
hood turn signal - 76.6% - 13469
f70 white sidewall - 27.5% - 4836 (came in white or red...no numbers showing for red..so not sure what to make of these figures exactly)

i have a 68 rt and was wondering if there is a way to figure out how many rt's came with my options and colors in 68.

Options: yes to some of them as listed above.
Colors: no with one exception. Color figures are not readily available until 1970. If they exist for years before that, I don't believe there is a public source for that information. Silver was an extra cost option so there are some numbers on that color.

I wanted to make a bullit charger but I have changed my mind. I would like it to be basically stock. I think it would look great the factory colors especially with no vinyl top.
