I cannot say with certainty that it is original to my car, but the shifter that came with it (along with many other original dated parts that were taken off soon after purchase by the original owner) is stamped 29D21C. Will upload a picture shortly once I figure this iPhone out....

My 69 RAIV Firebird was built 2D and shifter has the typical coding 190423D( Jan of 69). This is the original and includes all orig mounting hardware and linkage.

That confirms is it a model year format change and the format is not dependent on the vehicle application.

Thanks!!!

Just to be sure, you can assure that is the original shifter to that car, correct?

Jan shifter in a June car?   That's a much larger gap than in any of the others on our list (I think all of which are within a month of car production)...

Most seem to be within a month or two. There are a couple with 4 to 6 month gaps.

Mine is super close, a 12D car with a 12-68 shifter.  I don't think there is a week given on the shifter code so can't narrow it down further, but my car and shifter are both in the same month of the year so they can't be more than a couple weeks apart.

However, a shifter, or most any other date code spread 2-3 months apart wouldn't worry me much, as long as it's obviously before the car build date.

Have owned this car since 82, and don't believe it was replaced.
