    Thanks for your reply's Jim and Fred. May be interested in both. Can one of you tell me which one is "correct" for and early 70? I am led to believe that there were two versions used. One with a tube and one without.

    I believe that the A body used the tube type, and upper series used the bayonette.

    Cheers, I looked in the assembly manual for 70, Looks like power brake A body cars got the tube.(to get around the brake booster) Tim IMG_20180704_165055340.jpg

    Thanks Jim. That is very helpful. So, since the car in question is a A body, PB car, looks like i need the one with the tube. Anyone have one or two for sale.

    There is something about the tips on the handle also. There are red tips and white tips. Can anyone shed some light on that?

    Are you just looking for the tube or the stick plus the tube? I have the stick with the tube.
