Trivia Question 16 - Standard Item You could Delete for Reduced Cost?

OK. Here's a new trivia. There is at least one main standard (non-option) item that one could "delete" on a new 1963 or 1964 Cadillac for a reduced cost.  What is it?  For extra cigars, what is the stipulation regarding this special delete item?

The AC which would be a stock item in our year cars in most cases 

My second thought is no engine  LOL ! 

Enjoy 

Nope. AC was an extra cost option on all 1963 and 1964 Body Styles. Engine was standard, but could not order without! LOL

Surprised that AC was an option in our years as most cars and models I view do have that option 

Thanks for the Laugh 

Enjoy 

Auto trans or have I misunderstood the question?

Good guess.. but no cigar! Here's a hint. I read on another site that this item became standard equipment in 1962. 

Now, would a radio fit the question.

Nope, radio was an extra cost option.

Manual windows?

Heater. 

Chris, Have a Cigar! That is correct. The only stipulation, which was obvious since they were an integrated system, was that you could not delete the heater when the Comfort Control Air Conditioning is ordered. Here is the full text in the Spec Manual:

"All Models may be ordered without heater/defroster as an option at reduced cost.  However, when Comfort Control air conditioning is ordered, the heater cannot be deleted as it is an integral component."

Seat belts —- YES !

No. Seat belts were optional in the rears of both 1963 and 1964, and fronts became standard in the middle of the 1964 production year, but there was no provision to put folding money in your pocket if you opted not have the standard front seat belts installed. The only perk was you got to fly thru the windshield and suck face with any Lincoln drivers you hit head on! Now.. that is funny!! :-)
