I'm glad to be of help, Randy. I hope that boot from HBC works out well for you.

Here are a few more shots of my NOS shift boot.

Jon - probably a stupid question, but in one of your pictures of your new and NOS boot taken from directly above, it appears as though the base of the rubber boot has a taper that makes it wider at one end than the other..
I assume that it is positioned so that it faces with the wider end towards the front of the transmission tunnel and the narrower end towards the rear and seats?
It appears as though it and the rest of the mounting hardware could be attached either way and now that I look at it, I believe that I may have in haste to 'be on the road' have had mine reversed with the narrower dimension facing towards the front of the car.
This may have in some small degree contributed to my old boot ripping, although it is also smaller overall than the one I now have in hand from HBC (finally after 4 weeks and almost $25 over the list price - you gotta love shipping and customs to Northern Canada - eh!?). I'm ready to install the new one and just want to make sure I get it correct this time..
I can't seem to find a picture of the correct orientation although it would be hard to in fact see considering the minor differences in the dimensions in any interior picture..
Thanks - Randy

That original one Jon showed looks like the repro I got.  I just have to try and remember where I got it.

Randy, you are correct in thinking that the wider part goes toward the front. The 4 screw holes in the boot should line up with the holes in the floor pan.

That one does look the same except the seam on top and it looks like the original slot for the shifter was offset a little.
