Yes, normal. As noted, 1969 was the first year for steering lock. Just for your own knowledge - I would have some kind of security system added to your car whether it be aftermarket or a hidden kill switch. If someone really wanted to steal your car, all you have to do is unplug your ignition switch and insert the plug into a "new" switch and fire the car up. That was one of the reasons the change in '69, harder to get at the key and even if you jumped/hot wires the ignition switch the locked steering column required the key to drive it away.

There was also a locking bar that locked the transmission shifter as well.

and

know how to open up a pontiac hood on the safety catch

and

Never let anyone shut your hood ....

wiggle left and right .. push towards the wind shield and gently pull down
