Q: 350 with Hood Tach for 1969
What were the restrictions on ordering the hood tach in 69. I can’t find any reference to this at all in any of my literature. So, were they offered on the entire line of Firebirds, or could you only get them on 400s and 350 HOs. Were they included in a package or were they an orderable line item. Any info will help.
A: According to my order sheet:
UPC Code = U85
COL = 471
“Tachometer, Hood Mounted – N.A. w/322”
322 = Trans Am Pkg.
Looks like it could be had with anything but that Trans Am….seems odd.
A: After I got your reply I looked in Thomas DeMauro’s “Firebird Decoding Guide 1967 – 1981” and found it immediately. He has it listed as UPC code UB5. Perhaps a misprint in either of the documents. Also he has no mention of the T/A restriction, but it makes sense considering the hood design.
A: The above answer says the option was N/A for the T/A. Thats usually because that particular equipment was included the T/A package, in other words, when you ordered the T/A option, you got that equipment and didnt have to order it separately.
