More 65 Acadian trivia


Just trying to wake up this section a little!

Name the two things wrong in the picture below:

I should point out this is from my 65 Acadian owners manual.

Nobody??? C'mon, if you know your Acadians a little bit, it's real easy.

Carl,   That is a real page (undoctored) out of a 65 manual.   It should have been titled above the cluster "Sport Deluxe Model Guages", insted of Super Sport.

Also, shouldn't there be an adjustment knob to the right of the clock for hand adjustment.

First thing I see is the title is wrong, it says Super Sport instead of Sport Deluxe.

My next guess is the clock between the speedometer and gauges shouldn't there, this is an instrument cluster from a Nova/Acadian H body car.

You guys are good, and the Sport Deluxe part is correct. The clock picture with the hand, I hadn't even noticed! There is a clock on an SD car as pictured though. And just for trivia sake again, it is much larger on a Nova than on an Acadian.

Still one more that hasn't even been mentioned though. Pretty good, you guys, for non-65 guys!

Was there a tach available on a "65?

Bingo!

Nope, only in a Nova. It went in the clock hole, between the speedo and gauges. The Acadian had a much smaller hole for the clock, so no room for a tach.

There is an accessory tach that looks just like the 66 L79 Nova tach. That would be the only "factory" piece.
