Ok, here is one for you guys.

I don't know all the cars this can pertain to, but sixties GM for sure.

There is "standard" equipment on a certain model car. This "standard" equipment is, well, standard. You will get it when you bought the car whether you wanted it or not. So one would think, but you could special order without some of these items on your car. What is this commonly called?

Many times there are parts that the manufacturer put in place of the item you didn't want, what are those parts commonly called?

Both are actually the same answer so I am not asking you for more.

And by the way, I have had a few of these "fill in" parts, they sell for a MINT!

Brian

Hey Brian, looks like that Mustang had gas pedal delete too. That's gotta be rare.

How about Panhard & Levassor (1889) or Peugeot (1891)? I had to do some Googling for those!
