I don't have all the data on Hurst dates (especially Firebird) and am trusting what some others who have more experience have told me.
Maybe the date format changed midyear...

Not a criticism, but why was date gathering for shifters not a research topic or why not make it one? Like gas tank dates, which provided enough data to graph a conclusive pattern of tank dates, same could be done for shifters, I would think? I'll volunteer to get this started and collect and arange the data.

X2 on 68B2 off my 12B. I am/was beginning to be concerned that this shifter was not the OE. Not so sure now. Seems unlikely 2 have the same dates, but 6 months?. Anyone else?

I don't think there is that much reason for concern. :)

Thanks, I wasn't really concerned. I know my shifter is original, just thought I'd add some info from my car which might enhance info on this the topic overall. I had never really looked that closely at the date/batch code until the report, and had never seen the 6 before reading the report and checking my picture more closely.

Joe, I moved your last post on date codes into a new thread in the Research Topics and reports section.

This is the link.

I updated the article. Though the research is not complete, the date coding apparently goes by model year.
And I updated about the 69 3-speed handles.
