    I can tell you my 91 vert had them and my 92 vert has them. I have run across chrome knobs multiple times in the junk yards but only on verts. they are usually accompanied by chrome door handle bezels.

    There has to be a way to find out if they came factory on say 89-1993.. I have been seeing them. I think they are tacky -

    My '92 has 'em. Might it depend on interior/door panel color? Mine door panels are white so black ones could look odd. No clue. Never noticed/cared to look on other cars.

    My 93 coupe with black interior has them and my 90 7up vert also has them. I believe they are factory.

    I wonder if it isn't tied to the exterior color of the car?

    My fathers 1991 Wild Strawberry/Grey LX has them. Don't remember what my 89 had, but they were replaced at some point. I have never seen chrome door handle bezels though?

    If they are twist off no big deal. I was just curious I have been seeing them more and more, so I figured they were replacements, but then I wondered if Ford put them on there.
