carl, carl, you awake?
took a few pics but the inner fender brace is in the way of a good shot. i've posted a couple of a '66 biscayne i had saved.
note on the 2nd pic, the ball stud threads into the bellhousing not the block.

Thank you very much for the photos!!!!  It makes it much easier..  I looked at my bell housing and it has the hole.  As Carl says, look at the details..  No wonder I hide mine in the garage..  I'll try to make it as neat and tidy..  thanks so much!  I'M GOING TO SEND YOU A PHOTO OF SOME Tims and some donuts  Carl 2

That's why I was wondering. The stock lever would sure look cool in there...

Nice car Carl my first car was a 4 door Strato Chief Plain Jane 6cyl 3 on the tree. But had alot of fun with it .Was wondering if you or any of your members would know what year these banners would be from? i think 48 or so. I think they are so neat just to see what was a option back then.

Never seen one, but what a great idea!

I wonder if they make one for my Acadian? I am not too far in that project that I couldn't do that if they make it to fit a console. That would sure be slick.

I had a stock shifter in my 66 Nova SS 25 years ago, and after a lot of practice hit most of my full throttle shifts! The ones I missed sure tortured that poor little 327. I never pulled a single full throttle shift with that 427 Grande Parisienne, not wanting to blow up a genuine 427.
