What are the different dealer options available in 1969? I have an NOS tissue dispenser that was used on all '69 Chevys. What other kind of useless junk could you get? I hate winter.

Cool

Winter Sux. How about the option in 69 that was a bottle of traction helper in the trunk and you hit a little button somewhere in the car and it sprayed some of the stuff under the rear tires to aid in traction.
Trivia time, what was the option code and what was the name of the option and what did the bottle contain? How much extra?
Sorry I dont have the answer but have the question.

V75 Liquid Tire Chain 188 sold as a RPO @ $23.20. The chemical was made by Dow Chemical Company.It was sold -given away as a dealer promotion prior to the 69 sales year( to boost sales ) in a cardboard sleeve that said STOP SPINNING YOUR WHEELS.The RPO refill cans were distributed by AC Spark Plug Division part # LTC 400 (1550521). The stuff in the can is a sticky tar like substance (brown in color)that makes a mess.The button for the system is located under the dash,left side,and is red in color.The button is exactly like a vaccum power trunk release unit except red not black.

And as a side benefit, when it got real cold; the liquid would thicken so much, it wouldn't dispense from the can!

I have a strange option that came with the 69 suburban. I'm still trying to figure out if it was dealer option or factory. Metal window shades for EVERY piece of glass in it, including windshield. I pulled the ones in the back and had the windows tinted limo black. I heard they are rare and the guy I bought it from had the complete set. I have them in a box now because they aren't very good looking. When I first saw the truck I thought they were some kinda funky looking defrosters.

Stevo,
My old man had a set of those on the windows of his 1970's K5 Blazer, He said they were from Dick Cepek.

Thumbs up

So they MAY be aftermarket you think? They very well could be. But I have been told you could get them with the truck new. I guess I'll have to do some more serious research.
John, does your dad still have them? I would think even aftermarket, there wouldn't be many left.

The new guy gets it!! 68L30 sounds like you got the prize, go get yourself a beer.

Was the Camaro the only model to get this option?

I wouldn't mind the compass (for when I take the Camaro into the forest), and the locking gas cap. The tissue dispenser doesn't fit so I'm going to mount it on my desk along with a Buick tissue dispenser that I'm supposed to get.

My cousin once had a Lincoln with a trunk-mounted toaster.

I may have the lock ring for the gas cap.The tissue dispenser should fit, even with air.Do you have the right one? It should be all black(plastic) with a aluminium band with a bowtie.
