alright, i have a 69 charger that is supposed to have a auto console shifter.

i have the console, but am missing the whole shifter.   here are pictures of whta is on the floor of the car right now:

this is the piece of the console that the shifter goes through, is it missing the gear indicator.......or is that part of the shifter assembly?


help???
what parts do i need to complete this part of my parts hunt?

You need the part on the right:


It looks like this in the car:

great!   that’s for the quick reply on that.

i see that the shifter doesn’t have that shift indicator on it, so i am assuming that it is supposed to be a part of that center console trim piece (from pic i posted?)   is it an individual piece that attached?

ok, part 2 to the question.   is the shifter for 69 the EXACT same as 68/70, somewhere i read there was some sort of variation between the years.    also, what other makes/models can i get the correct shifter, and last but not least, how hard will it be to find one and what should the average price be for one.

Thanks!

You need a shifter like this but with a woodgrain ball shift button.
There is one on ebay right now but its a bad picture for you to tell
exactly what you need.

I have heard that also, that some shifters have a bit diferent bend, I
could not tell you witch one that is. I think 66-70 will work from
everything I have seen.

That will not be so easy to bad its not there they usually are. You can keep an eye on ebay
and find a better one they come up for sale often, or mopar swap meets like our BCC mopar
meet, huge swap meet in our area every year.

lookin@my68

Hi all, thought you guys may find this interesting, here are a couple of shots of a 71  Australian Valiant shifter - extremely similar! All our shifter knobs from that year onward are black. Are the shifter knobs the only difference between 68-70 model chargers - or is there slight differences between the shifter gates and/or linkages. I'm looking at buying a 68 charger over here in Australia but its column shift I really want a floor shift car - is this a big deal to convert?? What is everything I will need?? Does anyone have a factory part number for the shifter mech on a 68?? - One last thing - do the BB 727's and SB 727's use the same shifter and linkages?? :icon_smile_cool:
