NC titles can be notarized out of someones name but not notarized into the new owners name at that time. I think it is called an open title. I did something similar a while back and met the deceased,s spouse at DMV and she had a legal doc allowing her to sign. Since we were both there no problems.

Some states purge the vin from the system if there is no activity on them after 10 years.  Arizona is that way here.  My Z sat for 30 years with no activity and I had to pay a $25 fee to re-enter the car into the system.  Not a big deal.
Same here. No biggie, and they let me keep my old title from 1977 (I hadn't plated/registered it since '91). That was more important to me than getting the car "back in the books"

It's staked in place IIRC...could you re-attach it similarly? I wonder if solder would hold but it would be possible to solder since it's copper wire and a copper lug.

The gear doesn't resemble what I have always worked with. Is it a cast metal gear ? All mine are thinner nylon gears, white, and a lot closer to the gear case when installed.

I'll get a pic later this morning -


x2, Mine is white nylon or?

Just curious is all.  Helps me to make a decision.  Mine is intact and working fine, my wife just doesn't like the feel of it.  She's used to the aftermarket Hurst Comp Plus that has stop bolts etc....

Since these originals seem to be pricey, I may just bag it and store it away and refrain from any modifications to it.

I see Hurst makes Comp Plus shifters now complete with the round sticks for the factory look.  But there are 2 of them.  One is more of an OEM reproduction but still has stop bolts in the body along with original looking rods.  The other is Comps version of it with their rods, but still has a round stick.  Oddly the OEM reproduction is cheaper.   Here is a link to both.  Anyone use the OEM version?  I'm curious as to why the $100 price difference.  They both still have the round stick.

OEM replacement from Hurst

Hurst version 

The biggest difference I see from the 2 is the OEM version having rods that adjust like the 69 shifter, where as the regular Hurst has modern rods and threaded inserts like every other Hurst out there (oddly that's more expensive)    As long as the OEM version still uses the bushing kit on the rods I'll go that route and save $100.  Can't tell in the picture.   Both appear to have the reverse arm that works with the back drive linkage.

Ah! I loved my can of Berryman's Chem-dip until the can rusted through and it all leaked out. What a smell that stuff had. Newer stuff isn't as good but more Eco friendly, I guess.

Just a ball park.  What is the going rate for a complete shifter assembly these days?  The rods, housing, stick and knob that is complete, correct, and in perfect working order.

Were you in Wisconsin when you owned the car?
