the 66 was the last year for 4 speed pontiac/hurst shifters using the early style Hurst Lever
that is forked on the bottom and not removeable and last year for the early design
friction adjustment bolt linkage ...
If your trying to look original ... I would buy a 66 restored shifter
and use ALL 67 68 linkage
this is a late 67 handle that fits the console better in reverse they say ...
this is the dagger style slide in handle new for 67
I have a mint one for the late 67 if anyone has a need
you would get away from that original last year compresion/friction adjusters
on the 64-66 linkage
get your 66 rebuilt and use 67 68 real gto linkage and it will still clear your console correctly
and sell what you just bought...that black aftermarket hurst linkage with the round adjuster
nuts are junk ... to me ... yah they work,,, should have lock nuts both ends...blah blah
yah they are better that worn original
but nothin beats GOOD condition factory ... or factory style repro linkage
heres a 68 set up for linkage visual ....mounted in my 68 frame
and the HURST box is basically the same chrome handle is 68 69 on a 70 M-22
just my .02 ......
