I suspect most '67/68s didn't have the tacho option. Few cars I've seen had one, neither of mine did.



A-ha, I've never really noticed these ones, the ones I've seen probably all had the tacho retrofitted.

That's a '68 dash. To add in the tacho the fuel gauge was swapped across to one of the small gauges.
You'd have thought that the tacho would be standard with the GT option but not so.

You have my attention, educate me on the differences between 67 & 68.

Yep that's a 68 dash .  The 2 long slots , wiper switch slot and blinkers  and brake  waning light I think it is  on the right hand side for the 67 .And I don't think the 67 has the horse under the clock .

Google the gauge clusters for '67 and '68 and put them side by side and you'll see numerous differences including changed gauge positions, differently styled control knobs including the heater controls, etc and all as Glenn 70 noted.
Yep, that's what I'd call a full '67 dash on yours, complete with tacho and clock, standard interior style with the black camera case finish.
Many cars didn't get the clock - there was just a blank panel in back in lieu of the gauge - unless the Deluxe interior was ordered. Yours has the standard interior yet has it anyway. Plus you have the tacho. You also have the lower door grilles which are there for the door courtesy lights and/or door speakers options, or both (in your case for the 8-track presumably).
AFAIK those were all options available individually, but equally could have been bundled as a package, either at the request of the first owner or by the dealer for a car for stock to glam it up, you'd need the factory build sheet to work out more detail. It's the sort of topic that causes much debate among some enthusiasts and concours types.
Suffice to say you've got a very nice car with a pretty comprehensive stack of options.

That wiper switch location looks like it would suck while driving.

You're right there! Stupid location. Mind you, there's also the washer bottle pedal on the floor which activates the wipers for a couple of sweeps.
However, I never drive mine in the rain.

Yep if you ordered a tacho in 67 you got the 6,000 one . If you bought a hi performance K code you got the 8000 tacho .  Yes the wiper switch is in a stupid spot on 67/68 models ,but not much better on other models either . Looks like you bought a ripper of a car  :thumb:

The car came with this carb set up as well as the standard autolite & manifold
Not sure if Ill stick with this set up or go back to the original
Were these carbs an option or is it an aftermarket set up?

The car has stalled a couple of times, I think the needle & seat is sticking
Fuel was coming out the vent tube
Am I on the right track with the needle & seat sticking?

Yes you are , check and adjust the float levels on all three carbs .  But it might have some dirt etc in the needle and seat ..  You can try tapping the top of the brass screw and see if that stops it .

What are the autolite 4100 carbs like?

I'm thinking I might put the carb back to stock
