That's the dilemma. Looks like a really nice car but I don't think I could live with a 3 on the column and would hate to start changing it if it is still all original.3 on the tree is the standard if the 4 speed or the power glide is not selected.
Can you live with the column 3 speed?
There really is no such thing as an SS 'package'. The SS was a distinct model, 11837 for V/8 and 11737 for six cylinder. Basically, it was an appearance upgrade and offered little or nothing in terms of performance enhancements.What exactly constituted an SS package besides the trim?
Yeah, some people will try anything to sell a car. There was never a bench seat option for any 1st or 2nd generation Nova SS. However, the SS was no longer a separate model beginning in 1968 and it became an option for coupes. The SS had a standard bench seat unless you ordered the optional buckets. A console was also a separate option, as were the gauges to put in it.Thanks Bob,
reason I asked is I recently saw an ad for a 66 SS with "rare bench seat option". Sounds like this would not have been possible? Or would it. Perhaps anything was possible back then.
