hey don't forget ansen sprint and keystone classics and the daisy (200s) american racing equip rims , american's bearclaw they took the place of torq thrust rims in the racing world .
I had a Super Tach in the late 80's on my 71 Pontiac. I remember unscrewing the worm clamp to sell it for gas money one night. I wish I still had it.
May not have been the "most popular", but certainly the coolest!:
I had a Sun Super Tach in my first car. Been looking for something to go in the Dart. Just found it. Thanks
Sun Super for sure under dash 8 track wasn't much for decals but had a fender emblem I loved on my 68 Super Bee simply said HEMI
Oh BOY! .... like you're asking (what was automotive "fashion" in the '70s? Well, P/S was HUGE then so a lot of guys tries to emulate them. To that end, you'd get: Sun tachs, as mentioned (S-W was second) Sun gauges with blue backlighting (looking to buy them now, BTW) gold anodized valvecovers, oversized rear tires (l60.15s if you could fit 'em) vertical gate shifters (racing auto trans weren't fully developed) "Lakewood" bolt-in roll bars 8-track players white headers & undercarriage solid lifter cams Accel coil & wires Mallory or Accel distributors Cragar S/Ss in front, Ansen slotted wheels in the rear hood scoops of various styles. Usually to copy the P/S cars "Purple Hornies" glasspacks---Thrush 'glasspacks if you were poor "flex-a-Lite" 'glass fans 'most anything by "Moroso" pinstriping cool-cans braided lines (as it was new stuff then) airshocks bolt-on traction bars (usually "Lakewood" NMW ladder bars Edelbrock "tarantula" manifolds (for Mopars) STR or Weiand manifolds. Did I leave anything out!!
Yes you did! Air shocks. Missed it sorry.
its on the wrong side of the car?
I'd be curious to know what those mods cost today versus what they cost back then?
Forgot sidepipes. Can't add much since I was just a young pup in the 70's, but I hear you on not wanting the new retro looking stuff. I have a early 70's underdash fm 8 track in my 1967 Dart, my one concession to the digital age is a redirad so I can play my mp3 player through the FM radio in the 8 track player.
Sun super tach, Realistic FM converters , or reslistic 8 tracks Prismatic tape decals with the car name on them. Cragar S/S wheels
Ass, gas, or grass...nobody rides for free.
Lots of good ones! "Back in the day" (I know you guys don't like that phrase) I managed a speed shop for a few years. At that time the Sun Super Tach was king for the street with Stewart Warner gauges. If you were a racer, you had a Moroso direct drive tach. Accel Ignition was just becoming popular as well as Comp Cams. Cragar SS wheels were tops and Appliance headers were tops for the street. The racers always ran Hookers. We sold so many top brands but our electronics sucked. We had Kraco. I always had Craig Powerplay 8 tracks. I never liked the cassettes and it was too early for CD's. Every box of parts had a sticker. Cheap advertising for the manufacturers. Oh ya, Vic Edelbrock visited my store for a open house we had. Cool thing!
My 72 Duster 340 had an in dash Sparkomatic am/fm cassette with under dash 8 track, 40 watt power booster tied to 4 Pioneer 3 way speakers, a 40 channel cb to keep in touch with my crusing buddies, sun super tach II, and both rear side windows were full of stickers to broadcast what was under the hood. I could rattle my mirrors with those pioneers and power booster, and the rest of the car with that ratty General Kinetics cam. Good times
Been awhile since I drug these out.
I remember the Bunny Hi Jacker shocks. Definitely 8-track under dash. thrush mufflers.
Dixco red,white and blue Don Gartlits tech Purple Hornies
Don't know how many hooked one of these up, but you would be hard pressed to find one now. Imagine...cruise control for under 5 bucks.
Still have a flex-a-lite glass fan somewhere. Didn't move enough air so put a stainless steel flex fan on. Still using it. The tarantula manifold I still have on the engine.
