    I have a 73 console and shifter. You know how I can get this to work in a 71. It's not going to be a car judged for originality. I wonder if I can trim high side of console base to match low side so console sits level then still use my 73 shifter.

    Look at George N's site for coverage of this issue.

    Mark,a friend of mine has the 73 shifter into a 70 GS console,The console's for 70-72 are the same as 73,73's are a few inches taller. In His car you can see the shifter is taller then the 70-72,but he does not care.You might be able to cut the shifter about one inch on each side,but if you don;'t mind about originality,as is is fine.Bruno.

    You can trim the console body to fit the 70-72 floor contour. I can give you measurements or make a simple template for you if you need. I think you may need to shim the shifter mount, but, I'm not sure. Here is a link to Georges website -

    Matt he just needs the 70 shifter ,not the console.By the way,I done that years ago,cutting the 73 with a template,that's why I have 3 73 shifters and no consoles.And I also have 5 shifters for the GN.Bruno.
