164's had early style knobs in chrome and they probably came on 262C's in the later style.

Niiiice! I knew someone here could iron that out for me. I came across knobs in various colors and was surprised to see them in chrome.

I could probably put together a nice set for $14.99 shipped.

The early style are even sexier in chrome.

The lock knobs in my '71 164 used black knobs. Most of the ones I have seen in 164's overseas were almost alway black until late '72. Every '73 to '75 had the chrome ones, and I fully agree, they are to sexy for words....

... until the chrome starts flaking off.

I mostly saw them on GLE's along with the stainless trims around the outer door handle.

I’ve replaced two sets with black ones due to failing chrome. Even the ones on my 264GLE with only 105K were flaking. Without the chrome the handles are just grey.
Chrome spray paint worked for a week. Not worth the effort.

My 84 245GL had them. Normal exterior handles.
My 81 264 GLE had them with the stainless exterior handle trims.
My 262C has black ones with the stainless exterior trim. Possibly replaced though.
