In 67, the tag only tells if equipped with a console.
U17 was available on any V8.
Gotta look at the wiring to tell if it had gauges originally.
An old post I know, but this is the exact mystery I'm trying to solve. My firewall has no hole for the oil line gauge but the trim tag indicates console and I have a low fuel light at the speedometer. What exactly about the wiring should I look for to determine if gauges were original? Yellow low fuel sending wire or something else? Also is there any precedence for an early February '67 car (327 automatic with AC) to have the oil pressure line routed through the grommet in the corner of the firewall behind the power brake booster? Could this be an anomaly chalked up to human error or corner cutting? Again, there is no hole in the firewall where it should be, just a dimple. There's a 1/8" hole low on the firewall behind the distributor. I've read what I could find here and at TC about the grommet vs. brass fitting and when that was changed over and this car is squarely in the midst of that time period but nothing I read clears this up.
