Q: Firebird Throttle Cables 1968 / 1969
I need help finding a throttle cable for a 1968 400. What one is correct?
A: Well, it seems there are some out there selling NOS cables as something they are not.
INFO I’VE DISCOVERED (*thanks to all who’ve shared*)
ORIG. GM PART NUMBERS:
9792222 1968/1969 F-6 1Bbl, F-8 2Bbl ***YELLOW TAG*** Total Length End-to-End: 19.5" Case Length: 13.5" (((This one is apparently still avail. from GM for approx. $25))) 9792223 1968/1969 F-6 4Bbl ***BLUE TAG*** 9792224 1968/1969 F-8 4Bbl ***WHITE TAG*** Total Length End-to-End: 18.0" Case Length: 12.5"
Now, in order to confirm all of this, it would be nice if any owner’s could measure their cables/cases. This includes all of the above… 4Bbl V-8, 2Bbl, 1Bbl I have a few pictures that I’m trying to get on the Generation-1 WebSite for comparison but AOL has been a real annoyance lately in updating info. Anyhow, if the updates come through, they’ll be at the following site:
