anyone know when the autotronic eye was first offered as an option?
I found one which a guy says will fit my car, I thought they only started offering this option in the early 60's on the Cadillacs, not on the 55 Chevs.

Hi luvinmy55, the option is actually known as the Autronic Eye and when it was first developed it was a very complex set of phototubes, switches, amplifier and relays. It was first offered on the Oldsmobile and the Cadillac's in 1952.

In 1953 all GM departments offered the option. In 1960 GM changed the name to Guide-Matic.
