Q: Ride and Handling Package
My 1969 Convert. came w/ the Ralleye Pkg. The ride and handling pkg. came w/ that. What is the ride and handling pkg? Include?
A: There were two Ride and Handling packages available. One cost $4.21 (with all 400s) and the other was $9.48 (with 6 cyl and 350s). Unfortunately, I can’t find any details, only mention of springs and shocks.
A: Basically, they are the same package, but cost differently since the 400 cars were already upgraded in that area. When I went to the spring section of the parts book, it referred you to the spring charts in the illustrations section. All the price lists and the original car order form just state “ride and handling package – springs and shocks”. I got my sales folders out, and in the accesories catalog it states “Ride and Handling Package (Code 621 – UPC Y96) For improved cornering and handling – extra-firm front and rear springs and shocks, for all Pontiac models. Heavier stabilizer bar for Tempest and Pontiac series.”
