429 For Sale question

[Image: 56329-DA6-3350-4917-87-E9-490288-EBD610.jpg]This car is supposedly a SCJ Drag pack car, but it doesn’t have a tachometer.  I must be wrong but I thought these cars came equipped with a Tach if they had the SCJ.

The car in question is a SCJ (Drag Pak) Ram Air car, designated by either the V- (3.91 Traction Lok) or Y - (4.11 Detroit Locker) rear axle codes. AFAIK, the only required option for any 429 car was disc brakes, and the Drag Pak package only got you the upgraded engine bits. See the 71 Facts book attached.

It has the Mach 1 Sports Interior, which included the 3 center gauges, trip odometer and clock, but they needed to check the box for the Instrumentation Group to get the tach.

Try right clicking on it and saving it to your hard drive.

With a factory 6150 rpm rev limiter, who needs a tach? lol No idea if the rev limiter actually still works, and there were replicas made which had no guts inside. What a iconic musclecar, and if it checks out in person that's not necessarily a bad price for a dealer. I love that look of no stripes, no front or rear spoiler, just black paint and the pure evil that is the 429 SCJ!
