67 Skylarks with Bucket Seats

Recommended Posts

As I noted above, if you ordered RPO D55 console in 1964-65, Oldsmobile included the tach. You could not get the console in those years without the tach. In 1966, every console came with the vacuum gage.

thanks for the information, Joe; 

 

others: note the clock below the tach, temp at top, oil to the right, and amp on the left1967-Oldsmobile-442-muscle-and-pony-cars--Car-101071789-e765eadf8e29c30c0c01f886759c01d6.jpg.39b1821fec8c4ae47622b0a67328150d.jpg

No. That is the original Olds Rally Pac introduced in May 1966. The turbocharged Jetfire was dropped after the 1963 model year.

That is somewhat similar to one of Ford's accessory 'Rotunda' column-mount gauge pods from 1967, which incorporated the same 'full-read' amp, temp, and oil pressure, plus a vacuum gauge, instead of a clock.  A separate Rotunda tach was also available.

'60s was a period when idiot lights (Chevvy even had COLD (green) and HOT (red)) were the norm and instruments, when available, were optional. Was part of what pushed me to Pontiac - instruments were more common. I always use a slight drop in oil pressure at hot idle to tell me when to change the oil & filter.

Well it was hard to get full factory gauges on a Buick in the 60's. OTOH it was easy to swap the speedo and tach in my 70GS so the tach was in the middle where it belonged. Problem with owning a gaggle of Jags earlier was that you became paranoid about oil pressure (40 psi at 3,000 rpm...)

Interesting how a post about Skylark bucket seats evolved into an Oldsmobile tach/vacuum gauge discussion!

Yes amazing, I am still curious of how many 67 Skylarks were delivered with buckets seats.However, I have learned a great deal about the console and it's variations.

Contact the Sloan Museum in Flint (I'm not sure if the Buick History Center still exists).
