    Can anyone tell me what years this was used on Screenshot_20180322-151833.png . Or even better a picture of the location they came in.
    I think it's pretty cool.
    .. I know the years are listed but just want to double check

    I'm not sure about 68, but definitely 69 70 probably 71 72 at least. In 68 they may have had leftover earlier ones (chrome) and would have used those. Could be chrome ones on 69, too. It depends what they have for stock. The instruction sheet would have the first year on it. They mounted to the right of the radio maybe 12" under the dash. Here's a pic...in this vicinity

    Thanks my Buick Brother.
    Here is a picture for the future if that eBay add expires Screenshot_20180322-160826.png I think it's classy. I used to have a 83 Eldorado with a small stock trash can by the passenger side floor.
    Thanks for your help.

    That style started in 68 and ran through at least 72. That is WAY overpriced.

    I agree i would pay 50$ the most. 20$ would be what I would shoot for, thanks

    These usually sell in the $75 dollar range NOS, I have seen them go lower and as much as $125

    Ryans-GSX Have fun, life is short.

    This is the one I put in my car. I put mine in with velcro so I could pull it out and put tissue in it easier.

    That's definitely different than the '57-60 units.

    That is a hard one to come by, I have seen those go as high as $300, That would be a good eBay item with lots of pictures and a really nice ad, Should do very well for you if you want to sell it

    Can anyone tell me the part number of the black plastic dispenser?

    I see various options but I like this one where the tissues dispense out of the bottom, the logo & the design.

    D4CE67E7-A284-4B6B-AEB2-A9BA7F8A127D.png That is the only one that was available in the black plastic with trishield for under the dash, you probably are seeing these Junior ones which are not made for under the dash but fir on the door panels. The one you are looking for pops up on eBay pretty frequently NOS, the Junior ones are a time a dozen

    Those are door mount tissue dispensers, I have an NOS set and they do appear on ebay quite frequently.
