Lame indeed. Often referred to as the "Broomstick in a Barrel" shifter. It was so awful, almost everyone threw it away. That's why Ford went to a different shifter in 1970. Ironically, if you want a correct 1969 shifter, you must pony up big bucks because they're very rare. Why are they rare? Well, because almost everyone threw them away.

Currently working on a 1970 Mach 1 project. See it here: http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/vi...ode-build.html

$2,500.00 for the phone number...you want mine or the lady I bought it from (or both)?

NPD's VP-4464 is nothing short of spot on...

Consider having a moderator move your thread to the build forum. Your thread is documenting bringing this car back to life. Maybe not an extensive build, but you are documenting all the restoration tasks you are doing.

@Israel, this is a good idea.

Phone battery was too low for flash but I got new bushings, shifter shaft and bezel in for the shifter. And as per normal when I press the button on the shifter it doesn't raise the tab far enough to shift out of park...

Freaking aftermarkets parts suck...

Wow....heck of a deal, congrats. I've been searching CL and ebay (probably not the best to places to look) within 500 miles of my house and have not come across a car that nice for less than almost 3x the money.

For those that don't know, on the shift arm there is an adjustment on the bottom that "tightens" the cable that runs up the center of the shaft. You hold the lock nut and turn the center counter-clockwise to tighten the cable so that the button will lift the tab high enough to shift out of park.

I got everything adjusted correctly and got the center console all back together.

The shifter has zero play, like new!

Since deciding this was a walnut woodgrain car, I have changed the console and door panel appliques (they came with the car as well).

Also, I have the passenger window in and adjusted. I need to get new rubber where it meets the quarter window and also the door felt but it fits nicely with the old parts.

I didn't know this, but sure wish I would have when I was rebuilding one of mine. Thanks for the tip!

Got a couple of things done today. Mocked up the passenger door panel and made sure the light worked.

Also, I rebuilt the heater box and re-installed it. Now i can re-install the dash...fun, fun...
