Identify that Console!
So I recently purchased a frame off restore ‘68 gto. Much of it is original, but the Th400 I’m told was from a ‘69 goat, at least I think I heard that. With that came what I thought was the ‘69 console. Take a look at the picture, one of my small improvement projects was to fix the issue where you can look right down and see the shifter mechanism. So I bought a ‘69 “slider” which is the black plastic piece shown in the picture. After finally getting the knob off, and the “frame” around the shifter, it’s starting to feel like this is not the shifter Or console I thought, and my slider wasn’t going to work. Looking through some books, I’m suspicious that this is not an original goat console.
And idea what this may be? Thanks!
Update from about 10 minutes after op. Per the Zazerine book, this console does look like the ‘69 original. But the slider doesn’t, at least I think. The slider is very large, and when the shifter is in park won’t fit, similar to when in drive, unless I’m missing something. Plus, I’m surprised the shifter hole is a slot, not sure why it would be. Thanks!
