12 Our '66 hardtop originally had a long console in it, as evidenced by the console installation mounting screw holes. At some point throughout the years, the console was removed and a standard shifter housing was installed. Whoever did the installation decided to forego the correct mounting bracket. Instead, they simply ran longer tapping screws directly into the shifter housing, all the way through to the transmission tunnel. The bracket shown here is the correct piece for a nonconsole car.
