Recently, I bought my second 1967 with a 400/400. The options on the car are PS/PB/tilt/cruise/AC/160 speedo/guage cluster/power windows. On the speedo, there is a needle for the mph, and a white needle for ??? and has a cable with knurled knob under dash/steering column to reset back to zero. I have never seen this option listed anywhere, nor have I seen another with this. (only looked at 30 or so 67-69’s) I have owned #1 bird for less than a year, and the other for 3 months, and am not familiar with the options offered.
A: I’ll address one of the questions. The little knob with the white needle is kinda like a crude cruise control. It basically will buzz when you go past the set speed (on mine the lights have to be on for it to buzz). I have the option code stashed somewhere so if I find it I’ll send it out.
A: You have a pretty rare option there, it was called Speedminder, and you set the maximum speed you wanted to drive at and when the speedo needle hit the speedminder needle, this cheesy buzzing would emanate from the dash. According to most literature I’ve seen, you could not get it with any other gauge option, although I have seen a 1969 with Rallye gauges and Speedminder, with the PHS invoice stating it was built that way!
