5 speed with console

(1/1)

sammywells:
does anyone have a 5 speed in a 65 or66 mustang with the factory style console. I would like to know if it will work ok. thanks.

66GTKFB:
If (the big "if") you get the shifter mechanism that locates the five speed stick in the stock location and with a manual transmission console plate, it will work. I'm not sure but you may have to relocate the console an inch or two.

Soaring:
Understand that it ain't factory, but you can make it work with a little massaging. 

sammywells:
thanks for the replys. I'm just looking at options. I like the clean look of the original style console but the aftermarket type with cup holder in nice too.

66GTKFB:
I have both types in my 66 hardtop, a factory full length cosole and a removable Hump Hugger type.  i like them both. The only problem with the Hump Hugger type is that the inner seat belts need a plastic sheath to keep them from getting lost "down there".
