without the U-14 option .
Is it possible?
Yes. Special instrumentation was standard with type LT but optional without it. At least in ‘74 anyway which I presume was the scope of your question.
Mallard is correct. It was a $82 option on sport coupe Z28 for 1974.
My 74 Z with 4 speed is without the u-14 option. A conversation with original owner verified that. Crazy
Totally nuts, isn’t it? It could have had a column shift too if auto trans was ordered & no console.
It’s nuts, a Performace option And no tachometer. I had the car at Good Guys this weekend, a guy came up and said he owned a maroon 74 z with column shift back in the day.
Z28 with column shift wasn't that rare. To get floor shift with automatic tranny, you had to order a console, and consoles weren't that desirable on a performance car. Since it was an automatic, you didn't shift it so it didn't matter where the gear selector was. Additionally, with an auto tranny, the tach became much less useful as the tranny was supposed to take care of engine rpms.
An auto equipped Z28 with no console and no gauges was a nice low budget performer.
Interesting analogy. However, until I followed this site I’d never even thought about the concept of an early 2nd gen z without gauges and/or column shift let alone seen one even though I remember the occasional late 60’s chevelle ss with the big block, bench seat & column auto trans. In fact I knew a guy that had one.
That’s an unsavory slice out of the z28 world. I’d own one but it’s blasphemy
No factory gauges on a z would bother me far more than a column automatic.
