Oh, I'd have to do something else for a shifter.... 1965 was an interesting year for torqueflites. The pushbutton transmissions used through 1964 had a cable for shifting, and another cable for Park (which was a separate lever, next to the pushbuttons). I think there was a law passed which required all cars to use similar shifters in 1965 model cars. So instead of redesigning the transmission to use linkage like all the other carmakers had, Chrysler designed new shifters, both for the column, and for the floor. My car came with the double cable floor shifter. Quite a neat mechanism. then in 1966 they redesigned the transmission, making it "normal". I'd love to use the original shifter...that would require modifying the gate to make it shift reliably, and adding a reverse lockout. I have a little experience with this stuff, having built the shifter for Plan II.
