68 Camaro TH400 shift lever
« on: April 06, 2018, 05:55:50 AM »
Could someone please post a photo of or link to the correct shift lever that bolts to the selector shaft on the side of the trans. The ones for sale that are supposed to be correct, differ from seller to seller, so I'm not sure which one is right.

With or without center console? They are also different.

Cool. Thanks 169INDY. As I said the repo ones look nothing like this and I can't find an NOS one anywhere. Anybody out there have a nice secondhand one for sale?

Jim (169INDY). Could you please verify this for me as it's a bit hard to tell from your photo. Which cable bracket does yours have, and does your lever have a slot or hole for the cable pin?
Regards Larry.

The retainer looks like this.

Thanks Jim, you've come up with the goods again. At least I know with your car it's original, so there can be no doubt.
Regards Larry.
