According to my stats book the 1968 500 XL body style 63C 2 door hardtop hit 50,048 and body style 76B (convertible) 6,066. Those were with buck seats and console. Thats also U.S production only.

The non convertible or the 500 XL 2 dr Hardtop body style 63C, there were 50,048 produced, these would have had bucket seats, this was a fastback model.
The regular Galaxie 500 2 dr Hardtop body style 63B, there were 69,760 produced, this also was a the fastback model.Likely no bucket seats.
There was also a Galaxie 500 2 dr Hardtop Formal body style 65C (not a fastback model) in which there were 84,332 produced. These would have had bench seats too.
Now there was the 1968 LTD 2 dr Hardtop body style 65A Formal in which there were 54,163 produced, but I don't know if they had bucket seats or not, could have been an option on some models. Maybe someone else who reads this will know.

Hello Ford Fans-
Does anybody need any 68 Ford XL Fastback parts. I recently purchased a complete car but it is too far gone for me to restore. Let me know and Iwill try to accommodate.

Have you tried Dearborn Classics? Page 53 of their catalog item #shk68A they have your plastic handle. Its $149.95 though. Hope that helps.
