My 1970 CST has this option, and was optioned this way because my father was a firefighter in 1970, and needed to raise the idle speed up to charge the battery when at the scene of an event. He had a Federal Visibar lightbar, flashing grille lights, and a mechanical siren on it for several years.

Re: Manual throttle option?

My last truck had one. I only used it when I was jump-starting another car.

My 1971 Jimmy has one. It made for an interesting challenge when it was time to replace the nasty old instrument panel.
