I was at a gunshop today at lunch and they had 2 1964 colt 5" 1911s NIB with brown plastic grips and all. One was in 38 super and the other was .45

The .45 was being sold at $950.00 I think and the .38 super with wooden box was at $1200.00.

Let me know if you guys are interested in them, I dont know if they are over priced but I can give you the address and phone number in E-mail.

I thought the grips on my pre 70 Gold Cup were plastic. Very course feeling and slips in your hand with little sweat. But I took them off during a major cleaning and wood was the grips. I think the WWII A1s were the only plastic grips on 1911s. I could be wrong but, my gun is'nt far seperated from 1964 only four years. And she wears wood with a strange plastic finish a sharp checkering. I was dupped and you were too I think.

Pre-70 Government and Commander Models had brown checkered plastic grips with a Rampant Colt embossed in the center. They have a reputation for shrinking with age, so if they're left off the gun for a few years it may be hard to get them back on. I think the Gold Cups always had checkered wood grips, though. At least, if I were buying one back then I certainly wouldn't want to see cheap plastic grips on Colt's top-of-the-line pistol!
