Simulated Leather shifter handle?
#1
Hi guys...

Brought home 71 Mach 1 with Deluxe interior ( similar to photo)
noticed that it has a color keyed black shifter handle.. is this an early option? My 71 conv. has delx. int. but has a chrome shifter.

Thanks for the feedback. Doug in Indy

Hey Doug,

I'm not sure about the shifter option. I do like the full console without the clock, not sure if ive seen that before. Also, is that a tach/clock? Interesting...

Others will be more knowledgeable but I don't think it is original.
Mine has deluxe interior and it has a chrome handle.

Yeah.. to the left of the wheel is a clock.. l just learned a while ago that
if you have a dash mounted clock.. you would have had a "clock delete plate" in the full console where the clock typically is located...
either MACH 1 or plain plate.

I'm not sure about what years used that shift handle but I have one in my collection that's still in a Ford package, might be NOS. When I get a chance I could look at the part number. It is for sale if anybody is interested. My car is a manual shift so I have no use for it.

as far as my knowledge goes, deluxe interiors with automatic C6 or FMX got the camera case finish shifter handle. standard interior got the chrome shifter.

there was a key locking shifter ford option that was all chrome. it locked the transmission in park with a key.

the shifter bezel was different between the FMX and C6, the fmx was black and chrome metal and the C6 was black finish plastic.
the shift pattern was the same, but the floor shifter mechanicals were different between the C6 and fmx. the fmx has the neutral safety switch inside the car mounted to the shifter floor, and the C6 has the switch mounted to the transmission under the car.

Now the plastic on the shift handle would crack from UV/sun exposure, so its possible somebody just replaced it over time.

Don at ohio mustang has seen tons of these and could give us additional information.
