Wheel Chock - 1971 Pagoda
« on: October 05, 2021, 17:13:25 »
I have a 1971 Pagoda that was manufactured in 12/1970.  In looking at the schematic for the tool kit it shows a wheel chock part # 110 583 01 75 as part of the overall kit.  Was that standard as I am missing that.

Any input would be appreciated.

It was. It has a special mounting place on the spare wheel support pillar.

My car has an 11/70 build date and it came with a wheel choke.  For some reason, the prices for used ones (and new ones for that matter) are absolutely outrageous.  Every so often they come up on eBay at a decent price.  Just be sure it has the threaded stem and wing nut to be able to attached to forked receptacle on the spare tire pillar.  Also since so many trunks have rust issue be sure it’s a solid one.

Amazing how rare these are/how many cars are missing them.

I think people might have been forgetting to collect them after tyre change...
