No longer published and pretty penny used. Have you actually seen, used one? Lots of them say they list it all, but reviews not so impressive. Can't find any sample page pics either.
I have the Red Book.
The pretty penny used may be worthwhile if you desire accurate information for building a car to spec with accurate codes.
It lists every option, order codes for every year, the code and list price for every available option. I dunno why reviews would not be impressive. All the information on parts and prices are there. I cross checked all all the info on my PHS with the info in the Red Book and all matched. I dunno why people would be unimpressed.
IF you desire the accurate information this may be the book you need. The prices are salty as I seen. Pay for accuracy or take peoples words on information.
You mention everyone knows the obvious on hood tach etc ....
The book states for the 1968 GTO there were 3 different hood tachs for that year. First type was installed until mid Dec 1967. The 2nd installed afterwards differed with respect to the division lines between the rpm numerals. Both had had longer lines both indicating a 5200 rpm redline. The 3rd was used exclusively on the Ram Air II engine with a 5500 rpm redline. I wonder how many people knew there were 3 different hood tachs on the '68?
I would bet the Obvious hood tach differences is not known for 1968.
The his her shifter you mentioned: was standard on floor mounted automatic transmissions. Hurst was standard on all manuals. I run into people who think the floor mount was an option.
I did find ONE error in that book as I researched. It mentions there were a few 1967 GTOS produced FROM FACTORY with tri-power... That is INCORRECT.
I talked with Jim Wangers about this a while ago when I was with him and he stated to me emphatically NEVER was a 1967 GTO produced from FACTORY with a tri-power. I tend to believe GTO Encyclopedia Wangers over a book. So nothing in print is always 100% accurate but this book lists it all.
Incidentally.... A few weeks ago while attending a Pontiac Fall Regional a fellow with a 1970 GTO stopped me to look at his car. He boasted how its all numbers matching. He shown me the correct stamped date coded plug wires, radiator hoses etc. Pointing out how he saved this car from Hurricane Katrina just before it hit..... He was bragging to everyone how the numbers were this and that and how he spent $$ to do this.
I looked inside the car..... He had a His Her shifter in it...... I looked at my buddy and laughed... He wanted me to tell the guy this.... I didn't have the heart to burst his bubble he was beaming with pride. So despite what is in print and what people think is right........ Not everything maay be what it seems. To me..... unless I have to have a concourse EXACT to the washer car....... doesn't matter to me about the car being 100% what it was from factory.
