Q: Optional Instrument Cluster Console
Besides the 1967 article I ran across, I have not seen an optional instrument console cluster. Was this only offered in 1967 or in the other years? If this was offered as an option for Firebirds, what sales code did it have in each year? I have seen the dash Rally Gauge Cluster and have the sales codes for it but do not have the information for the console style.
A: What you are seeing is an early production photo. The Firebirds never could be ordered with the console gauge package. However, their cousin the camero could. The console gauges were necessary on the cameros because the factory tachometer on a camero was in the dash cluster next to the speedo. As we all know, Pontiac choose to put the tach on the hood to allow plenty of space in the right speedo cluster pod for the other gauges.
