There should be no difference between a GMC Sprint and the Chevrolet El Camino. They were assembled along the same lines, used the same components, although badged for the correct make. Every GM column I have seen for these cars has an ACC position.
elcamino I am pretty sure my tilt column does not have the ACC position. Unless the key switch is bad. The ignition switch was replaced on the column with no change. In fact with the ignition switch out it did not go into that position.
My '71 Sprint has the original column.
It is the non-tilt floor-shift version.
The only lettering around the cylinder
is "LOCK" at the off position. However,
I can rotate the key counter-clockwise
to an accessory position.
Okay, now I feel bad. I checked my Sprint, and I can no longer say I don't have an ACC position on the key switch. I have a LOCK, but the (only!) key I have won't even turn to the LOCK position! Boy, I'm glad it opens the door!
Yes, only one door. I'm in need of the spring clip that holds the lock in place on the other door. Looks like I'll be spending EVEN MORE $$$ on this!
Well I doubled checked and I guess you can say that I do have a ACC position. Just barely passed the LOCK position I do get power to the radio.
So I just never thought I had the position as it does not move very far passed LOCK.
